Eddie Lacy getting stuffed

Eaaaaaaaaaaaaasy. Eddie Lacy. That guy has apparently passed all of his concussion-related tests because he was back at practice on Thursday.

That’s a sure sign that he’ll be in the starting lineup when the Green Bay Packers face the New York Jets this Sunday.

Lacy suffered a concussion in the second half of the Packers’ season-opening loss to the Seahawks last Thursday. He carried 12 times for 34 yards in that game. That’s a pretty un-Easy-Ed-like 2.8 yards per carry.

But the Packers couldn’t do jack on offense as a whole, so we’re certainly not going to fault Ed for the poor showing.

The Jets will present another tough challenge for the Packers offense, particularly the running game. So it’s good that all the horses will be in the stable.

In other injury news, both tight end Brandon Bostick and tackle Bryan Bulaga practiced for the second straight day. Bulaga is attempting to play a week after spraining his MCL. Bostick is coming back from a preseason leg injury.

With Thursday being the only padded practice of the week, seeing how Bulaga’s knee feels on Friday should determine whether he can play or not.

Want more good news? Inside linebacker Brad Jones sat out for a second straight day with a quad injury. This is a great way for the Packers to get that joker out of the starting lineup — by pretending he has an injury.

    Ahh, the old Packers MO of starting young talent due to injury, don’t worry, they will reinsert the scum bag Jones soon as the backup has a meh game. See Bishop, Hyde, Williams, Lang and Deitrich Smith as examples….fucking McCarthy….

    Bulaga should sit. He’ll tear that damn MCL if he pushes too early.

    But darn good news overall.

      but only for 1 week…we got a run of all 3 divisional foes in weeks 3-5 & we need that big ugly

    Hide the Ben Gay from Jones, we don’t want that thing treated.

    I still think any other lineman in there is better than Sherrod. I hope that if Sherrod gives up a couple of sacks this game then they will cut him.
    Now if we can convince Hawk that he is injured then we can replace him too. He’s almost as bad as Jones. I want to see Bradford in there.

    I am sure Lacy will be really frightening for the 10 minutes he plays before he gets injured again. He is made of glass just like the rest of your team.

    One more of these concussions and the running back we used to know as Eddie Lacy will look like the reincarnation of Brandon ‘Twinkletoes’ Jackson.

    Fuck.

    They completely cut Bishop (which we heard SOO much bitching about) and Evan Dietrich-Smith started his final three games because they yanked Jeff Saturday late in the season. And then they tossed aside EDTS to give the starting job to essentially either of two rookies. Hyde lost playing time to House (not a very old guy) and only increased his role throughout the year (he started over 80% of snaps in last year’s playoff game). Also Tramon had a starting job because they tossed aside Al Harris, and even signed him to the PUP list before releasing him.
