Packers running back Eddie Lacywas still battling a stomach ailment on Monday after his 125-yard rushing performance the previous day in Minnesota.
“He’s fighting through a GI illness,” Head Coach Mike McCarthy said. “He was in today for a ‘re-gen’ workout. It’s something we’re still monitoring.”
McCarthy said he was aware of Lacy’s illness prior to Sunday’s contest, but when it didn’t seem to affect his game, it didn’t affect the offense’s approach either. Lacy carried the ball a season-high 25 times, including 10 times on two fourth-quarter drives, in the 24-21 victory over the Vikings. His 125 rushing yards were also a season best, and he scored twice, on a one-yard plunge and a 10-yard shovel pass.
