On his second carry after halftime, Packers RB Eddie Lacy injured his left ankle while running for 2 yards on the right side. He limped to the sideline and spent the bulk of the quarter on the training table. Lacy’s ankle was heavily taped, and he tried to test his ankle around the bench area, but he was unable to return.
“It is frustrating,” Lacy said after finishing with 11 carries for 81 yards, “but it happens. Injuries are a part of the game. It’s still early, but it’s definitely frustrating. Especially when you’re doing good, and you want to keep going but you can’t.”
Lacy was able to walk unassisted after the game. The fact he talked with the media could also be a sign his injury isn’t too significant, but it’ll be monitored throughout the week. His goal, Lacy said, is to be ready for the Packers’ next game against the Dallas Cowboys.
“I’m a pretty tough person,” Lacy said. “I should be all right.”

It's certainly frustrating for Lacy owners since he was on his way to a very big fantasy outing, but the good news is that he was productive in his touches and the injury doesn't seem too serious. James Starks would play a big role against the Cowboys if Lacy can't play.
