Packers RB Eddie Lacy was held to only 2.8 yards/carry against the Seahawks defense on Thursday, suffering a concussion in the process.
On Thursday night against the Seahawks, Packers RB Eddie Lacy suffered a concussion, which required him per league rules to undergo the NFL’s concussion protocols. The former NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year rushed for 34 yards on 12 carries (a 2.8 yards/carry average), but was injured in the second-half against the Seahawks.
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy stated that Lacy cleared the first step of the concussion protocol and can continue with the process.
Lacy reportedly is optimistic that he will be fully cleared by the doctors to play in Week 2 for the Packers home opener against the New York Jets.
This was Lacy’s second concussion in only 16 career games played. In 2013 against Washington in September, Lacy suffered a concussion that caused him to miss a game the following week, but he rebounded and won the Rookie of the Year award after ranking in the top 10 for all major rushing categories.
