Lacy had seven carries for 45 yards in Friday's preseason game against the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Lacy continued his strong preseason with another quality effort on the yards per carry front, and he is now up to 5.7 YPC during the exhibition season. Lacy's touches slipped markedly last season, but with him healthy and running the ball well, he should see plenty of work early on.

Lacy had nine carries for 45 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason win over the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

For a second straight week, the Packers rode Lacy hard on their opening drive, and then went to James Starks for the second series. Lacy again made the most of his limited playing time, highlighted by a 20-yard scamper and a one-yard scoring plunge. After slimming down in the offseason, Lacy seems to have a strong grasp on the lead-back job, though Starks is also expected to retain a key role in Green Bay's high-powered offense.

Lacy said he already feels more explosive than he did last season, the Packers' official website reports.

EDGE Analysis

Believed to have lost around 20 pounds since the end of last season, Lacy appears to have found a better balance between quickness and size. He only made a brief appearance in Friday's preseason game against the Browns, but he carried the ball on each of his team's first four snaps, picking up 24 yards in the process. Though seemingly poised for a bounce-back campaign, Lacy will likely cede a decent portion of the snaps to James Starks, who signed a two-year, $6 million contract in the offseason.

Lacy had four carries for 24 yards in Thursday's preseason win over Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Lacy had four carries on the opening drive as head coach Mike McCarthy seemingly wanted to get Lacy off to a good start this preseason. Lacy dealt with an ankle issue last week in practice, but it didn't look like an issue Thursday. Lacy lost weight in the offseason and Thursday's performance adds to the thought he's set for a bounceback season.

Lacy (ankle) returned to practice Tuesday, Michael Cohen of the Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lacy dealt with ankle issue last week, forcing him to sit out Thursday's practice, while also giving him a questionable tag heading into Sunday's Hall of Fame Game that was cancelled. It appears the ankle was just a minor tweak and Lacy was back on the practice field Tuesday, so there shouldn't be any lingering concerns as the Packers' preseason opener approaches on Friday against the Browns.

Lacy (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's Hall of Fame game versus the Colts, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lacy is a candidate to join Aaron Rodgers on the sideline for the first of the Packers' five games this exhibition season. While Lacy tends to an ankle concern and James Starks is likely "limited to spot play," according to Silverstein, John Crockett may be the featured running back Sunday. However, a healthy Lacy is the No. 1 back under any scenario in Green Bay's offense.

Lacy is dealing with an ankle issue, and sat out Thursday's practice as a result, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lacy likely sustained the injury during Wednesday's practice when he exited early for an undisclosed reason. The Packers are likely being cautious with their workhorse back in order to avoid a lingering issue. Expect him to return to practice when his health is not in question.

Lacy sat out Thursday's practice for an undisclosed reason, Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lacy also dropped out of Wednesday's practice early. They Packers have not indicated anything is wrong with their fourth year running back, so it may just be a precautionary measure early in training camp. Expect an update if more information becomes available.

Lacy reported to training camp Tuesday in visibly better shape than he was in last season, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Weight was an issue for Lacy last last season, so he did some extra work in the offseason -- particularly with P90X trainer Tony Horton -- in an effort to get in and stay in better shape in 2016. Lacy refused to disclose exactly how much he weighs when asked Tuesday, but the report says that he is slimmer than he was during OTAs, and he was already smaller then than he was at the end of last season. The report also notes that he is not back to the weight he was at when he entered the NFL, but he is several years older now and simply may not be able to get back to that weight. Either way, it's good news for fantasy owners and Packers fans that Lacy has made it a point to improve his conditioning. If he is able to keep the pounds off -- he has extra motivation in a contract year -- that should lead to improved stamina and stability, and help him improve upon his sub-par 2015 campaign. If not, he could slip into a time-share with James Starks, similar to what occurred a year ago.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Lacy should be able to reach his targeted weight before the season, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lacy's weight has been a frequent subject of offseason discussion, with reports suggesting he's already dropped about 20 pounds since the end of his poor 2015 campaign. The Packers won't comment on his target weight, but it does seem the running back still has work to do, even though the team is pleased with his progress so far. Assuming he's in decent shape, Lacy is well positioned for a bounce-back season in what should be an efficient Green Bay offense,
