“The reality of it is the other team has to adjust to it, too. We have some history with Thursday games. We feel like we have a good schedule in place. Once you get to Thursday, it’s exciting. The preparation process is a real grind. The players are still sore from the previous game,” Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy said on Tuesday.
In a rare scheduling quirk, the Packers will play on consecutive Thursdays. They’ll travel to Detroit next week for a Thursday nighter.
The big news is quarterback Aaron Rodgers does not appear on the Packers’ injury report, as he did last week with a sore shoulder. It’s also good news running back Eddie Lacy topped the 100-yard rushing mark in Sunday’s win in Minnesota for the first time this season.
“He’s definitely hitting the hole quicker now. He’s more decisive. He had 22 carries. I thought he got into a groove,” McCarthy said.
