Lacy (eye) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Coach Mike McCarthy said afterward that Lacy's eye concern isn't "game-related," implying that his availability for Week 16 isn't in peril. However, Lacy's status should be watched closely as the week draws to a close.

Lacy (hip) had 15 carries for 97 rushing yards and a touchdown, as well as two catches on two targets for 11 receiving yards during Sunday's loss at Buffalo.
Lacy has now scored in five of his last six games, while reaching at least 100 total yards in seven consecutive outings. He continues to be a vital piece of the Packers' offense and he'll look to keep his good play going in Week 16 against Tampa Bay.

Lacy (hip) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Bills, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.
Lacy was a limited participant in practice all week, but he'll suit up as expected following a "probable" designation. There remains a risk he'll be used in a limited fashion, however, as coach Mike McCarthy seems comfortable with the idea of using James Starks frequently if Lacy isn't 100 percent. Lacy should be the lead horse until further notice, but both backs face a tough matchup against a top-ten Buffalo run defense that allows 3.9 yards per carry to opposing backs, and 99.2 yards on the ground per game.

Lacy (hip) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bills, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.
"He's getting better," coach Mike McCarthy said after Friday's practice. "He did all the strength and conditioning work." Lacy sounds like he will be fine for Sunday, but McCarthy also reaffirmed that he is comfortable giving plenty of work to James Starks, so perhaps we'll see Starks get a bigger slice of the pie than usual if Lacy's hip is hobbling him.

Lacy (hip) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Afterward, coach Mike McCarthy told Paul Imig of FOX Sports Wisconsin that "Eddie Lacy participated in the drill work and went through the teaching periods...He's making progress."
During the brief part of practice open to the media, Lacy was seen on the side without helmet, but there was the potential that he participated in the morning walkthrough. His duties didn't fall solely in the meeting room, though, as he was able to take part in at least some individual drills. Questions still abound with regard to his Week 15 availability, which could receive clarification upon the release of Friday's injury report. If Lacy is at all limited Sunday at Buffalo, James Starks would be the logical option to handle more work out of the Packers' backfield.

Lacy (hip) was present during the portion of Thursday's practice open to the media, but he fit in little to no activity, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Although he took in individual drills from the sideline, Lacy may have participated in the morning walkthrough prior to practice. However, until the Packers release their version of Thursday's injury report, his activity level will remain unknown. If he in fact sat out for a second day in a row, though, his hip issue may be more severe than initially let on by coach Mike McCarthy, who said Tuesday that he wasn't "overly concerned" about the injury.

Lacy (hip) was limited in Wednesday's practice, ESPN Wisconsin reports.
Lacy sustained a bruised hip near the conclusion of Monday's win versus the Falcons, but his ability to participate in individual work is an any encouraging sign to kick off the week of preparation. As the week unfolds, his availability for Sunday's game in Buffalo should crystallize.

Head coach Mike McCarthy is not overly concerned about Lacy's hip injury, Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
McCarthy's comments were vague, but it would appear that Lacy is not dealing with a setback that would result in a long-term absence. It remains to be seen how much he will practice this week, and whether or not he is in any danger of missing the Packers' next game against the Bills.

Lacy was removed from Monday's game in the fourth quarter due to a hip bruise, Paul Imig of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports.
Lacy gave way to James Starks for the game's final drive, finishing with 106 yards and two touchdowns on 18 touches (five receptions). While this doesn't sound like something that will hold him out for a Week 15 game in Buffalo, Lacy is still worth keeping a close eye on.

Lacy gained 73 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries, adding 33 yards and another touchdown on five receptions, in Monday's 43-37 win over the Falcons.
Lacy came out of the gates strong on the game's first drive, but James Starks poached a three-yard touchdown. While Starks actually finished with more rushing yards (75) than Lacy on 10 carries, five of Starks' carries and 43 of his rushing yards came on the final drive of the game. Lacy finished second on the team with nine targets, and he bowled over multiple Atlanta defenders. He's been one of the NFL's top running backs over the past few weeks, but even he may find things difficult in a Week 15 road matchup with the Bills. Owners can take some comfort in knowing that Lacy is consistently involved as a receiver, which is especially important for tougher matchups.
