The Green Bay Packers will forge ahead without running back Eddie Lacy, who was reportedly placed on the IR with an ankle injury, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.
The ankle injury suffered a couple weeks ago turned out to be more than just a simple sprain. Surgery is now needed to repair the damage.
#Packers RB Eddie Lacy suffered more than an ankle sprain, and after a 2nd opinion, surgery is necessary. He’ll be placed on Injured Reserve

For Lacy, this injury and report of being overweight again likely spells the end of his tenure with the Packers. He is going to be a free agent after this season, and at this point it looks like the former Alabama star is turning out to be a big bust after a couple of good years with Green Bay.
