When the Packers take the field on Sunday they will most likely be thin at running back and safety.
Rob Demovsky, from ESPN, reported
Not practicing for the #Packers: Bush, Lacy, Hayward, Kuhn, Burnett. The guess here is none will play at Cincy on Sunday. — Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) September 20, 2013
The Packers have not listed Lacy as out, but after suffering a concussion in last Sunday's game against Washington and not practicing all week, it is unlikely that Lacy will be available in Cincinnati.
The injuries would leave the Packers with only two running backs to face a tough Bengals defensive front. James Starks had a career game last Sunday, but rookie Johnathan Franklin has yet to play a single offensive snap this season.
And for the second game in a row, the Packers defensive backfield could also be thin. With a star receiver and two pass catching tight ends, the Bengals offense could provide problems for a weakened Packers secondary.
