Thursday October 20th, 2016

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy's ankle injury will require surgery and he will be placed on the team's injured reserve, the team announced.

Rapoport notes the Packers do not know if Lacy's season is over yet.

Lacy missed practice earlier in the week and was expected to be out for an extended period of time. He finished last Sunday's 30–16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys with 65 yards on 17 carries.

The Packers will host the Chicago Bears on Thursday night. The game can be watched on SI.com.
