Packers HC Mike McCarthy told reporters on Thursday that rookie RB Eddie Lacy is “making progress” following a concussion he suffered last week.
“He looks good,” said McCarthy, via ESPN Milwaukee. “He’s in the meetings and that’s always a positive sign, but he’s got a couple more tests in front of him that he has to pass before he’ll be able to practice.”
Lacy still did not participate in Thursday’s practice, so it appears as though he won’t be back until Week 5, as Green Bay has their bye following Sunday’s game against the Bengals.
The good news is that Lacy is progressing from what appeared to be a serious concussion.
