Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) doesn't practice Tuesday - [Full Article]

Packers running back Eddie Lacy will not practice Tuesday due to ankle soreness, head coach Mike McCarthy said.

This typically wouldn't be all too alarming, considering it's early in a traditional week. But the Packers will take on the Bears on Thursday night, which means it's a short week, and a smaller window for Lacy to get back to feeling good enough to go.

Lacy was a question mark before Sunday's contest with an ankle injury, and though he showed enough strength to lift his 234-pound body over defenders not once, but twice, the wear of the game again has him up in the air (pun unintended) for Green Bay's next game.

Fantasy Impact: 

Desperate for backfield depth, the Packers traded for Kansas City running back Knile Davis on Tuesday morning. If Lacy can't go, and with James Starks out, Davis could be a quick contributor at running back. This is a situation to keep an eye on.
