Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has already gone on record saying that running back Eddie Lacy would have to practice on Friday if he's going to play on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Through the first two days of practice this week, Lacy hasn't participated, still going through the NFL's mandated concussion protocol, after being involved in a helmet-to-helmet collision with Washington safety Brandon Merriweather in Week 2, for which Merriweather was fined.
So on Friday when the Packers return to the practice field, all eyes will be on Lacy and whether he's able to take part in the game planning for the Bengals.
For that matter, attention will be on Lacy's fullback as well. John Kuhn has yet to practice this week, sitting out with a hamstring injury.
Official game day status projections will be made prior to McCarthy's Friday press conference, to be streamed live on the team's official website at Packers.com, expected to take place at approximately 12:30 p.m. CT.
Early Friday morning, head coach Mike McCarthy will make his rounds on statewide local radio as follows:
- WTMJ AM 620 Milwaukee at 6:25 a.m.
- WSAU AM/FM 550/99.9 Wausau/Stevens Point at 6:35 a.m.
