2015 hasn't exactly been the best season for Eddie Lacy.
The Green Bay Packers star has struggled massively through the first half of the campaign, regularly being replaced by his backup James Starks after failing to get the Pack's rushing game going at all.
The running back seemed to get things back on track in the past two games, however, having 100-yard games in both and looking like the Lacy of old. But, the former Alabama star was dropped last night, leaving the man himself extremely confused.

Lacy didn't start against the Lions on Thursday Night Football yesterday, with the aforementioned Starks taking to the field first, and John Crockett somehow ending up as the leading rusher in his first NFL game.
Lacy ended the game with five rushing attempts for four yards and one reception that actually lost three yards. That was the sum total of his production, one whole yard.
Speaking after the game, Packers head coach McCarthy said that Lacy didn't have a good week in practice and wanted to give the presumed number one a wake up call of sorts.
Lacy didn't really feel like talking about his lack of play after the game, but did admit that he is unsure where he stands in Green Bay's offense now.
“Man, that’s something I don’t know about,” Lacy said, via ESPN.com. “We’ll see as the season goes on.”
