151118-nn1GREEN BAY — Eddie Lacy will practice, but Jared Abbrederis has been lost to a ribs injury for an extended period of time.

“We’ll see how he is at practice,” Coach Mike McCarthy said of Lacy, who missed Sunday’s game due to a groin injury. McCarthy said Lacy would be the Packers’ No. 2 running back in Sunday’s game at Minnesota.

Abbrederis sustained a ribs injury in Sunday’s loss to Detroit. The second-year receiver was making a move on increased playing time, but his season would seem to be in jeopardy now.

“Jared Abbrederis is going to be several weeks,” McCarthy said.

“We haven’t been where we’d like,” he said of his team’s struggling offense.¬†“Every year brings different challenges. It’s something we have to overcome. Throwing the football 61 times, that’s excessive.”

The Vikings?

“It’s year two of a program. They’re well coordinated. They’re playing faster, quicker. You can see it building. They have a big-time returner,” McCarthy said.
