Packers’ Eddie Lacy inactive vs. Lions (Shutdown Corner)

Green Bay running back Eddie Lacy is among the inactives for Sunday’s early games. Lacy suffered a groin injury against the Panthers last week and was unable to finish the game; he did practice this week, though the Packers listed him as limited . His officlal status for the Packers’ game against Detroit was questionable. Lacy’s health may not have mattered much: on Wednesday, Green Bay head coach Mike MCarthy announced that James Starks had supplanted Lacy as the team’s number one running back. Lacy and Starks have gotten almost an equal number of carries thus far this season, with Lacy getting 83 and Starks 78, though Starks has been a more effective in his chances (4.3 yards per carry vs. 3.7 YPC). Green Bay has lost two straight games after starting the season 6-0, and may have the perfect opponent in Detroit to end that skid: the Lions have just one win this year and have not won at Lambeau Field since 1991.
