Green Bay Packers running backs Eddie Lacy and Alonzo Harris both missed curfew on Wednesday night in Detroit before their game against the Lions, according to a report.
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.”
