Will they get healthy in time for the Packers upcoming game with the 3-1 Detroit Lions?

So that's why we brought in another RB. And here I thought it was just for kick and punt returns.

This is the perfect chance for a healthy Lacy to get his first 100 yard game of the year. I am very excited to see him on the field this sunday!
