Packers-Jets Wednesday injury report: Lacy, Bostick progress
GREEN BAY – Tight end Brandon Bostick is feeling better, and so is running back Eddie Lacy. But neither of the Green Bay Packers offensive skill-position players will know just how ready they are for a return to game action until after they take part in Thursday’s practice in pads.
In Lacy’s case, if he clears the final hurdle of the concussion protocol, he could practice Thursday. Lacy suffered a concussion at Seattle last Thursday. He did not participate in practice Wednesday but whas there as a spectator.
Bostick, who hasn’t played since suffering a lower leg injury against St. Louis in an Aug. 16 preseason game, took part in Wednesday’s practice on a limited basis but said he wouldn’t know if he could play Sunday against the New York Jets until he takes part in another practice.
Here’s a look at the full, official injury report from Wednesday:
“I would say Eddie Lacy is near the end [of the concussion process], just based on talking with Eddie and what the medical staff feels,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said after practice. “He's had good workouts. He's progressed very quickly.”
Bostick took part in individual drills, group drills and special teams work but said he only took “a few” snaps on offense.
“: It’s weird being back out there, I haven’t been out there in a while. It’s good to get back into the flow,” said Bostick, who learned he’d been cleared to practice on Wednesday morning, after running and working out for the medical staff on Tuesday. “I felt fine when I was out there running.”
Asked if he thought he could play Sunday, Bostick replied, “I felt fine. Tomorrow will be the real test, full pads. We’ll just go from there.
“Going full pads, we’ll see how that goes. … I’m just trying to get back out there right now. I don’t know how much I’ll contribute on offense. I’m doing special teams now, just working there.”
Bulaga took part in practice on a limited basis, which was an accomplishment in itself given that he left last Thursday’s game and did not return because of the knee injury. Bulaga reportedly suffered damage to the medial collateral ligament in his left knee, the same knee in which he had a torn anterior cruciate ligament repaired last year.
