The ankle injury that has bothered Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy was problematic again on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Lacy left the game in the third quarter.
He first sprained his right ankle on the final play of the second quarter against the Atlanta Falcons on Dec. 8.
When he left the game, Lacy had 84 yards on 15 carries. He came into the game needing 78 yards to set the franchise record for rushing yards by a rookie running back. He broke John Brockington’s record of 1,105 yards that was set in 1971.
James Starks replaced Lacy. The only other running back on the Packers’ roster is Kahlil Bell. Week 17 the Packers play at Bears who struggle to stop the run, so Starks is a smart pickup if you're playing for something.
