The Green Bay Packers have made a less than ideal start to the 2016 NFL season so far, with questions flying about the franchise and players.

Sitting on a 3-2 record through week six of the campaign, the Packers haven't looked that convincing at any point, failing to win any game by more than one score while being blown out of the water at the weekend by a Dallas Cowboys side led by rookies at key positions.

And things don't look like they are getting any time soon as Green Bay suffered another blow yesterday, with the news coming that Eddie Lacy could be out for longer than expected through injury.

According to a report from Ian Rapoport of, Lacy's sprained ankle injury is worse than it sounds and may well keep him out for a while.

Lacy was dealing with an ankle injury in the lead-up to the Packers' loss to the Cowboys on Sunday. The running back managed to play through the pain and ended up with 65 yards on 17 carries.

With Lacy's backup James Starks also dealing with an injury, the Packers will have to call on their newest recruit, Knile Davis, who joined from the Kansas City Chiefs in a trade yesterday.

Davis should see real action on Thursday night, as the Packers face their NFC North rivals the Chicago Bears.
