Green Bay Packers' Eddie Lacy returned to practice

This Sunday’s NFL Game of the Week on FOX will feature one of the greatest rivalries in all of sports as the Green Bay Packers travel to the Windy City to take on the Chicago Bears. Did you know it was for the NFC North division championship?

The stakes couldn’t be any higher, but I’m sure I’m not the only one who thought the final match up between these two teams would determine ones playoff hopes. If you haven’t noticed from the picture below the article, I’m a Chicago Bears fan.

As a Bears fan, I have had no choice but to respect the Green Bay Packers. If you’re a fan of either team or understand the history behind the rivalry, then you know why.

Anyways, running back Eddie Lacy has had himself an amazing rookie season. He’s made a huge case for himself when it comes to Rookie of the Year honors and I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes home with the award. He’s been on a little bit off a snap count limit for awhile and has missed some practices in between.

Lacy has been dealing with a little bit of an ankle problem and has missed some practice this week. After missing a couple days he finally returned to the practice field but wasn’t doing much during the open portion according to Rob Demovsky on Twitter.

Even if Lacy isn’t able to suit on Sunday, this Packers team won’t have a problem running against this terrible rush defense of Chicago.

    The Packers may well win their division and make the playoffs without one player being selected to the Pro Bowl. That will be one more giant wart on the Pro Bowl game, which used to be just fine, but now has become a joke since the league tried to fix a game that wasn’t broken in search of more ad revenue. This year the Pro Bowl has missed entire teams as well as the top-rated quarterback in the NFL, Nick Foles. But if you’ve been champing at the bits to see big-mouth Neon Deon engage in a pick-up playground game against Jerry Rice, you’re wait is over.
