AP_394729176607lacy650GREEN BAY — Mike McCarthy spoke with hope Eddie Lacy will be able to play in the Packers’ next game, against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football.

“Eddie was here today for treatment. We’ll see how he moves around on Thursday,” McCarthy said of his star running back, who sustained an ankle injury early in Sunday night’s win over the Seahawks and didn’t return. The Packers will begin preparation for the Chiefs on Thursday.

The win over visiting Seattle is one of the most satisfying in recent team history. Did the tape support the feeling?

“It wasn’t good as it felt. That’s what Week 2 is. We hit a lot of our targets we wanted to go after in the football game. The pre-snap penalties, there’s no call for that. We got our hands on some balls. We’ve got a lot of work to do and an extra day to do it,” McCarthy said.

James Starks replaced Lacy and rushed for 95 yards.

“James Starks is a helluva running back. He was a big part of our run to the Super Bowl. He’s the ultimate teammate. He always puts the team first. We could play 50-50 with him and Eddie,” McCarthy said.

The Packers held Seahawks star running back Marshawn Lynch to 41 yards rushing.

“B.J. Raji had an outstanding game. One of his best as a Green Bay Packer,” McCarthy said of his veteran nose tackle.

“We are what we are. We have two wins. We’re where we want to be,” the Packers head coach added.
