Packers running back Eddie Lacy missed curfew before Thursday Night Football
Friday December 4th, 2015

Green Bay Packers running backs Eddie Lacy and Alonzo Harris missed curfew on Wednesday night in Detroit before their game against the Lions, ESPN’s Rob Demovsky reports.

Despite two consecutive 100-yard games, Lacy saw limited action in Thursday’s comeback win, playing just 19 snaps and carrying the ball five times for four yards. He caught one pass for a loss of three yards in the second quarter, and went without a touch in the second half.

Harris was cut before kickoff.

Coach Mike McCarty called Lacy’s demotion “an internal football decision that was made,” and didn’t rule out the possibility that the move could have been disciplinary.

“Could be. But those things we don’t discuss in here anyway,” he said. “It’s something that we handled internally, and that was the outcome.”

The team worked out former Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball, a second-round pick in the 2013 draft, on Friday.
