Rookie running back Eddie Lacy entered Sunday with a questionable tag placed next to his name, but there was no way this young man was missing this game. It was an opportunity for him to pad his stats as he’s made a huge case for himself when it comes to Offensive Rookie of the Year honors.
I honestly have him winning it this year. Lacy has been a huge part of this offense and has brought Green Bay’s running game back to life.
Now the Packers have rested Lacy on Thursday’s over the last month as they’ve been limited him during the week. But today Lacy was on the practice field in full pads as Packers prepare to host the San Francisco 49ers.
RB Eddie Lacy was in full pads. First time he’s practiced on a Thursday since early December. #Packers

It’s a Wild Card match up that will be a rematch from Week 1′s 34-28 loss at Candlestick Park. Green Bay hasn’t had the best of luck against this team recently but will look to turn that around during the opening round of the playoffs.
