Packers hope Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin provide 1-2 punch on the ground
“I thought Eddie practiced well today,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said after Monday’s practice. “So it was good to have him back out there. He’s full go, and I think the week off definitely helped him.” [+] Enlarge AP Photo/Mike Roemer Eddie Lacy is helped off the field after suffering a concussion on his first carry against Washington in Week 2. Lacy was not available to reporters Monday, but last week before the players broke for the bye, he said he had yet to be cleared. He said he didn’t remember anything about the hit from Meriweather. “I didn’t know nothing,” Lacy said last week. “When I got to sit down on that bench, that’s pretty much when I came back.” It’s unclear whether Lacy will return to his starting role this week.

The Washington Redskins safety, who has been fined multiple times by the NFL for helmet-to-helmet hits, launched himself at Green Bay Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacy early in Sundays game. Lacy suffered a concussion on the hit and wouldnt return to the game, according to Foxs Pam Oliver. Lacy was falling to the ground and had lowered his head to brace for impact when Meriweather launched into him. Meriweathers helmet hit Lacy near the jaw and violently snapped his head backward. It wasnt a cheap shot, but given the helmet-to-helmet hit, Lacys injury and Meriweathers past, the league office is likely to review the play. Mike Pereira said its not clear what the end result will be. After watching the replay of the Lacy play, the question is did the defender line him up w/ and hit him w/ the crown? The league will review
