07:14 AM ET 10.01 | On the upside, rookie running backs Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin were feeling well enough to practice coming out of the team's bye week. The bad news is that two other running backs, halfback James Starks (knee) and fullback John Kuhn (hamstring), remained on the shelf with injuries. So the Packers remain thin at running back, which prompted them to promote Michael Hill, an undrafted rookie. ... However, [Mike McCarthy] sounded optimistic about Lacy following practice Monday, and Franklin appears to have overcome a foot injury he suffered late in the Bengals game, when he turned in a sparkling performance with 103 yards rushing on 13 carries. "I thought Eddie practiced well today, so it was good to have him back out there," McCarthy said. "He's full go, and I think the week off definitely helped."

So, from what I've learned, some football players are healthy and some football players are injured. I smell a local Pulitzer.

I hope Lacy has something, I need him off my bench and on my active roster.

How long till he's sidelined again

The good news for Packer fans is the Lake should be frozen over for ice houses in about three weeks.

"Full Go"? Is that a medical term?

If he gets hurt again in the Lions game then we can pretty much guess his running style doesn't gel with the NFL. To date he has done very little and were game 4 of the season. All do to injuries and set backs. They are still heralding this guy and he has proven nothing to date.

Well Starks has provided his one good game for the years so he'll be "nicked up" for the rest of the season. As far as Lacy goes, unless he can play defense his return won't mean much to the Packers other than to reduce the amount of points they lose by.

Draft an RB, draft a bust.

Playing running back for the Packers is like playing the drum for Spinal Tap: not likely to last very long.

Packers don't need a running they got Air Rodgers to score pts. But how about improving that defense?

Running the ball will help keep their offense on the field longer, thus helping their defense.
