Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy had his injured right ankle heavily taped before practice, but he and wide receiver Davante Adams were able to participate in individual drills on Friday.
Before Friday’s practice, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he expected both players to participate in a limited capacity, specifically during individual drills. With the Packers’ game against the Kansas City Chiefs looming Monday night, McCarthy was interested to see how well his running back and receiver could move on injured ankles.
“Got to see them move around,” McCarthy said. “So this will be the first time you get them in individual, and if it evolves, we’ll see how it goes.”
Three players on the Packers’ 53-man roster were unable to practice on Friday. Outside linebacker Mike Neal (groin) was limited in Thursday’s practice and did not participate Friday. Cornerback Demetri Goodson (hamstring) was out for the second straight day, as was right tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee).
Packers safety Morgan Burnett participated during the early periods, but he stepped to the sideline and appeared to be limping during position drills. Burnett missed the Packers’ opener at the Chicago Bears with a calf injury.
Backup tackle Josh Walker left practice temporarily but returned.
