We’ve got a full day. Almost two full days.
However, if the Green Bay Packers were playing right now, safety Morgan Burnett, running back Eddie Lacy and receiver Davante Adams would only be 50/50 to make it onto the field.
All three players were listed as questionable on Saturday’s injury report.
Burnett tweaked his calf injury on Friday. Both Lacy and Adams suffered ankle injuries in week 2.
Adams returned to that game, but Lacy did not.
However, if we had to pick one of those three who was most likely to play, we’d go with Lacy.
He played on an injured ankle down the stretch in 2013 and carried the Packers offense on his back while Aaron Rodgers was out with a broken collarbone. Lacy also did more at practice on Friday than Adams did.
Outside linebacker Mike Neal, fullback Aaron Ripkowski and safety Sean Richardson also joined the trio above on the injury report as questionable.
All three of those injuries are new, although Neal had surgery in the offseason. There has been speculation that he aggravated that injury.
Both tackle Bryan Bulaga and cornerback Demetri Goodson are listed as out.
We’d really like Goodson to get healthy momentarily so the Packers can cut that injury-prone bastard. Seriously, Demetri Goodson is the answer to the question: Who is the only guy on the Packers roster to get injured more than Clay Matthews?
It’s Goodson and he doesn’t even contribute.
If Lacy plays, he probably will be sharing responsibility with Stark more than usual.
I say keep lacy out if starks is doing well. Need to save lacy for dec and jan where his power is really needed.
When is burnett or neal not injured?
Totally agree – have Lacy suit up, but don’t bring him in unless needed. Let Starks, a VERY explosive guy in his own right, use his legs a bit, and let’s save Eddie for the second half and post season as much as possible.
What the fuck ^^^^
Does James Starks have a history of putting good games back to back? Off the top of my head, I don’t think he does. He’s usually very up and down. I really want Lacy to be back tonight.
