Eddie Lacy, Davante Adams questionable for Packers

Eddie Lacy and Davante Adams are both officially listed as questionable with ankle injures for the Green Bay Packers in Monday night's tilt versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

Every game, all season

Both participated on a limited basis on Saturday.

"I thought Eddie did some good things in his limited reps," coach Mike McCarthy said early Saturday morning. "Monday night game, so we have a lot of time left. I feel good about treatment today, light practice tomorrow and obviously all day Monday. I think Eddie and Davante are both progressing."

The extra day before the home bout is an added benefit for Lacy, who left last week's contest in the first half. In Lacy's stead last week, James Starks carried 20 times for 95 rushing yards and earned four receptions for 11 receiving yards. Starks will get the bulk of the workload if Lacy can't go.

Adams played through his injury during last Sunday's victory. If the second-year player is hindered at all it should open up the door for rookie Ty Montgomery to play an even larger role in the Packers' offense after catching four balls for 37 yards in Week 2. Montgomery could be in line for the bevy of receiver screens that generally would go Adams' way.
