Packers get good injury news while preparing for Jets

Packers running back Eddie Lacy is back in practice a week after suffering a concussion during the team’s season opener.

Lacy fully participated in practice today. The Seahawks’ stout defense held him to 34 yards rushing in Green Bay’s 36-16 loss.

After going on the road last week, the Packers have their home opener this Sunday against the New York Jets. The team has also received some other encouraging injury news.

Green Bay right tackle Bryan Bulaga, who hurt his left knee against Seattle, also practiced today for a second straight day on a limited basis. Tight end Brandon Bostick missed Week 1 with a leg injury and also returned to practice on Wednesday.

“It’ll help a lot (to have Bostick back)”, Packers tight end Richard Rodgers said. “He’s a great player. He has great size, great speed, so it’ll help all of us getting him reps in practice and just getting him back up to speed. It’ll be fun to come out there and see how everyone responds to a loss.”

“(The Jets have) got a solid defense,” Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb said. “They tackle really well. One thing that we didn’t do well last week was break tackles, so that’s a big emphasis for us on the perimeter. They still show a challenge for us, and we’re going to go out and prove ourselves this week.”

The Jets will be on the road for the first time this season after opening the year with a 19-14 win in New Jersey against the Oakland Raiders.
