| Don Jackson likely to start Week 7 vs. Bears -- Thu Oct 20 1:50 pm --|
Eddie Lacy expected to miss most of regular season
|The Packers will determine later if Eddie Lacyís season is over. But tonight, newly promoted RB Don Jackson will be the main back. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Owners can pretty much stick a fork into the impending free agent for 2016 as IR will keep him out until late into December. Even though the Packers traded for Knile Davis on Tuesday, Jackson is the right choice to start against the Bears if only because he has been around the team and should know the offense. Ty Montgomery, Knile Davis and perhaps even Randall Cobb might get some backfield work, so Jackson is a desperation start at best tonight. Davis is the better long-term bet, however.
| Eddie Lacy headed to IR, ankle surgery -- Thu Oct 20 1:45 pm --|
Don Jackson expected to be activated from practice squad
|Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy needs ankle surgery and will be placed on injured reserve, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Thursday. The Packers are unsure if Lacy will miss the remainder of the season, the source said. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: The Packers are expected to promote Don Jackson from the practice squad in time for tonight's game against the Bears. Lacy can be dropped from re-draft leagues once he officially goes on IR. Expect Ty Montgomery and Knile Davis to handle most of the work in the backfield tonight with Davis possessing more upside moving forward.
| Lacy misses practice Tuesday -- Tue Oct 18 2:30 pm --|
Status for Thursday up in the air
|Eddie Lacy didn't practice Tuesday, and a source told @Edwerderespn , "I can't see him playing'' Thursday against the Bears. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: The Packers traded for Knile Davis today and it's not out of the question for him to be the main ball carrier for the Packers on Thursday given the injuries at the position.
| Jamaal Charles "a stretch" to play in opener -- Wed Sep 7 6:58 pm --|
Limited participant in practice Wednesday
|KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The trend in the NFL over the past decade has been away from the bell-cow running backs of the 1970s and `80s, instead keeping fresh legs and healthy players on the field. As the Chiefs prepare for their season opener Sunday with a four-headed backfield of Jamaal Charles, Charcandrick West, Spencer Ware and Knile Davis, they are doing so with the understanding that all of them will get ample opportunities to make plays in Reid's offense It could be easier in the opener against San Diego with Charles still working his way back from last season's ACL surgery. He participated in practice Wednesday, but Reid has said it's "a stretch" that the four-time Pro Bowl running back will make it on the field this week.
FF Today's Take: With Charcandrick West (elbow) rejoining the team in practice today, the Chiefs could use up to four running backs against division rival San Diego on Sunday. Nevertheless, Spencer Ware's consistent production last season and this preseason has him lined up to receive the majority of the carries this weekend.
