The most likely scenario for Lacy’s return is that he would sit out Sunday, get an additional week of rest with the Packers’ Week 4 bye and return for the home game against Detroit on Oct. 6.
This report isn’t directly from the team so you can take it with a grain of salt but it does make sense. The Packers have a serviceable option in James Starks so they might be more willing to hold Lacy out and give him that extra week of rest. I own Lacy in a league where I went WR heavy early and thus I’m thin at RB. I’ve stepped up my waiver bid in order to make sure I have a running back this week.
