“He participated in the drill work and went through the teaching periods,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “He’s making progress.”
Lacy agreed about making progress after, as he put it, he ran into "two big dudes" late in Monday's game.
"It all depends on how my body feels," said Lacy, who played through a sprained ankle late last season. "If I can go out and play through that pain without setting the team back or putting the team at a disadvantage, I’ll go out and do that. If not, then I’m not going to risk that."
As has been the case throughout the season, the team will not practice on Friday. That will give Lacy an extra day to recuperate before Saturday’s light practice and Sunday’s game at Buffalo.
“I think everybody responds clearly after a high-tempo practice and the workload is the highest of the week in the Thursday practices,” McCarthy said, “so the opportunity to recover from them, I think everybody benefits from it. They feel good about their bodies. It’s been helpful and that leads to a better Saturday practice.”
The outlook isn’t as bright for cornerback Davon House, who sustained a shoulder injury when landing on Atlanta’s Julio Jones during a fourth-quarter pass breakup. McCarthy said House is having more testing done on Friday and perhaps Saturday to check the severity of the injury.
“We’ll let you know tomorrow,” McCarthy said of House’s prospects of playing on Sunday.
