Packers would like to decrease Eddie Lacy’s carries


According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette,  the Packers would like to decrease the load on Eddie Lacy and have James Starks and DuJuan Harris take more reps in order to preserve Lacy.

Lacy said he’s ready for another 250 or 300 carries if that’s what the offense calls for, but the coaching staff would like to lessen the burden for the between-the-tackles back, who ran the final month of the season on a badly sprained ankle.

“We haven’t sat down and figured out an ‘X’ number of carries for Eddie,” offensive coordinator Tom Clements said. “Eddie was a workhorse for us last year, and then when James got in there last year, he ran very hard. That was a great one-two punch. Now you factor in DuJuan and the other guys, it’s going to be interesting to see how that plays out.”
