The Green Bay Packers aren't quite having the season that everyone was expecting them to - despite getting wide receiver Jordy Nelson back on the field.

Green Bay are second in the NFC North with a 3-2 record and they are already quite far behind the 5-0 Minnesota Vikings who lead the division.

Desperate times

It got worse for Green Bay at the weekend after they lost to the Dallas Cowboys at Lambeau Field - typically a fortress for the Packers.

They also lost their starting runningback Eddie Lacy who is dealing with a persistent ankle injury and was confirmed that he would not be training on Tuesday.

With Lacy's back up James Starks also on the sideline, the team contacted the Kansas City Chiefs for help.

They have now completed a trade that they will surely be hoping will help them save their season.

Green Bay have acquired runningback Knile Davis from Kansas City in exchange for a conditional late round pick.

The Packers certainly had no other choice but to make the deal as Lacy is expected to miss Thursday night's game against the Chicago Bears.

Chicago will be hoping to capitalise on the frailties of the Packers right now and come away with a huge divisional win.

With the Bears really struggling on 1-5, a win over the Packers certainly won't move them into contention for a play-off spot, but it will be a huge moral boost.

The Bears have the joint second worst record in the league - only the Cleveland Browns are worse with 0-6.

Green Bay will be the heavy favourites going in the game on Thursday - especially at Lambeau, but you never know what will happen in the NFL.
