Today, the Green Bay Press-Gazette reported some great news for Packers fans, as it appears that injured RB Eddie Lacy will return to the field when the team hosts the Lions in Week 5.
“Yeah,” Lacy replied when asked by the Gazette if he'll return for the Detroit game. “Since I wasn’t cleared, I had no intention of playing, but I have a bye week to still get right. When I get back, we’ll see where I go from there.”
Right now, it's no secret that the Pack really need a healthy running back. James Starks and Jonathan Franklin are both minorly hurt, but since their injuries happened more recently, it's likely that they will return later than Lacy.
