Lacy rushed 17 times for 103 yards and added one catch for two yards in Sunday's win over the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Lacy had a remarkable day, eclipsing 100 yards for the first time since Dec. 13 of last season. Lacy carried six times for 42 yards in the first half, carried the load in the second half, recording 11 carries for 61 yards, as the Packers tried to stave off a furious comeback by Matthew Stafford and the Lions. Lacy's 6.1 yards-per-carry was his best mark this season, and the Packers will need him to continue running the ball well if they want things to open up for Aaron Rodgers and the passing game. The Packers will have a bye in Week 4 before the Giants come to town in Week 5.

Lacy totaled 12 rushes for 50 yards during Sunday's defeat at the hands of the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Of the 48 official carries for the Packers after two games, Lacy has handled 26 of them, followed by James Starks (11), Aaron Rodgers (seven), and Randall Cobb (four). Such usage is slightly above Lacy's averaged carry count from last season's disappointment, which doesn't exactly inspire confidence that he can replicate his output from the first two years of his career. However, his 4.3 YPC this year matches up almost precisely with his mark as a professional, so if the Packers opt to commit a bit more to the ground game, another 1,000-yard could come to fruition.

Lacy gained 61 yards on 14 carries and caught one of two targets for another 17 yards in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Lacy received the bulk of the work out of the backfield Sunday, ceding just four carries to James Starks, but he only averaged 4.4 yards per tote versus an improved Jaguars defense. Lacy appears to be in the coaching staff's good graces following a turbulent 2015 season, but he will need to produce more consistently to keep hold of his starting role. He will face another tough matchup in Week 2 versus the Vikings.

Lacy will not play in Green Bay's preseason contest against Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

Green Bay has began each of its first three preseason games with a healthy dose of Lacy. In the first drive of each game, the team would hand the ball to the back and let him take them down the field. Having seen enough from their feature back, the Packers will roll out Brandon Burks as their starting running back for the fourth preseason tilt.

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.
