Eddie Lacy Will Play Sunday Against The Jets

The Green Bay Packers will have their stud running back Eddie Lacy for their Sunday matchup with the New York Jets. Lacy suffered a concussion last Thursday against the Seattle Seahawks but he is in the final stages of the NFL concussion protocol.

Gang Green always does a great job shutting down the run and last week they only allowed 25 rushing yards on 15 carries against the Oakland Raiders. However, Lacy is a must start every week regardless of the matchup, so go ahead and put him into your lineup with confidence. He is an every down back and is involved in the pass game.

Lacy most likely won't run wild against the Jets but Aaron Rodgers will move the ball down the field as the Jets probably won't have an answer for Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Lacy will get some goal line touches as he's a threat to score every week.
