Lacy (knee) rushed for 73 yards on 21 carries in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

Lacy had a productive day, considering the opponent, but he was never able to break any game-changing runs, and his longest scamper went for only 13 yards. His knee injury did not appear to be much of a factor, and backup James Starks logged just five carries, one of which went for a 32-yard gain. Barring an injury or unforeseen roster move, Lacy will return as the Packers' No. 1 running back next season.

Lacy (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Seahawks, the Packers' official site reports.

As expected, Lacy will take aim at Seattle's stout run D on Sunday, with James Starks on hand to spell him if either Lacy's knee or asthma issue flares up as the game progresses.

Lacy (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against Seattle.

Playing Seattle on the road is the worst possible matchup for any offense, but Lacy's knee is evidently a non-issue, at least. It's worth noting that, while he totaled just 34 yards on 12 carries and 11 yards on three catches at Seattle in Week 1 of the regular season, Lacy looked like a different player from October onward, totaling 1,467 yards and 12 touchdowns from scrimmage in his 13 games from that point. The Packers might need a valiant effort from Lacy to pull off the upset Sunday.

Lacy has been added to the Packers' injury report after being limited in practice on Thursday due to a knee issue, the team's official site reports.

Coach Mike McCarthy relayed that Lacy was pulled from practice Thursday because the running back's knee was sore, but the move appears to have been precautionary in nature, with McCarthy adding that he thinks Lacy "will be ready to go on Sunday" against the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game.

Lacy missed a portion of the second quarter due to an asthma attack in Sunday's win over the Cowboys, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

This explains why James Starks took so many snaps in the first half, as it was widely expected that Lacy's snap count would increase during the playoffs. The Packers did a good job of limiting the second-year running back's workload during the season, but it now makes sense to have him on the field for nearly every play. While there's always some risk that he'll miss a bit of time because of his asthma, Lacy figures to dominate the running-back touches in the NFC Championship Game against Seattle. The matchup is obviously brutal, but Lacy and the Green Bay offensive line are a powerful force in their own right. And, the Seahawks are pretty thin at defensive tackle, while the Packers count the interior offensive line among their greatest strengths.

Lacy ran 19 times for 101 yards in Sunday's 26-21 playoff win over the Cowboys.

Lacy, who also caught a pass for 10 yards on Sunday, figures to remain busy next weekend in the NFC Championship Game against Seattle, with star QB Aaron Rodgers likely to still be dealing with a calf issue at that time, and a balanced attack likely on tap for Green Bay.

Lacy had 26 carries for 100 yards and caught 3-of-4 targets for 26 yards in Sunday's win over the Lions.

Lacy looked awesome on Green Bay's opening possession, although he ultimately got stuffed on a fourth down carry near the goal line. It was still an impressive performance from Lacy, as he had to deal with a very strong rush defense. For those playing in postseason leagues, Lacy will either face the Cowboys or the winner of the Cardinals-Panthers wild-card game in two weeks.

Lacy had 17 carries for 99 rushing yards and a touchdown, as well as one catch on one target for five receiving yards Sunday against the Buccaneers, though he missed most of the fourth quarter because of cramps, ESPN.com reports.

Lacy eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark for the second consecutive season, and he now has nine touchdowns in his last seven games. The Packers clinched a playoff spot with the win, but they are still playing for a first-round bye, which means Lacy should be on the field in Week 17 against the Lions, who are competing with the Packers for the NFC North title.

Lacy is experiencing minor cramping and is probable to return to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.

Lacy was seen getting his calf massaged on the sidelines, but the cramping isn't expected to be overly serious. He'll continue to receive treatment, but it would be surprising if his day is already done. In the meantime, John Kuhn has been seeing extra carries for the Packers.

Lacy (eye) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers.

Lacy practiced in a limited fashion all week, but as expected, the issues with his contact lenses will not prevent him from taking the field Sunday. The 24-year-old back has averaged 4.9 yards per carry over his last five games, and although the Tampa Bay defense allows just 3.9 yards per rush to opposing backs, it's a solid matchup for fantasy owners.
