The Green Bay Packers traded for RB Knile Davis just hours before announcing Eddie Lacy would miss multiple weeks with an ankle injury.  James Starks is already ruled out with a knee injury for weeks as well.  Davis will finally get a chance to be a workhorse, just not with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Knile Davis was drafted 96th overall, in the 3rd round of the 2013 NFL Draft.  In 2014, he rushed for a career high 463 yards with 6 touchdowns on 134 carries.  He added one receiving TD as well.  57.5% of his career carries came that season.

When Jamaal Charles has missed games, Andy Reid turned to Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware over Davis.  The Packers are now forced to feed him the ball

Lacy has rushed for 5.1 yards per carry this year, so if that is any indication of how well Green Bay's offensive line is blocking, Davis could be in for some big games.  Problem is, the Packers are the only team in the NFL without a rushing TD from a RB.  Green Bay's running backs haven't even caught a touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers and their 11 receptions - lowest in the league.

Other RBs for Lacy Owners to Consider
