Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) doesn't practice Tuesday

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.
