The Green Bay Packers offense has struggled through the first five weeks of the season, and it likely won’t get much better after suffering some devastating injury news on Thursday.

While it was widely assumed Eddie Lacy would at least miss the Packers’ Thursday night tilt with the Chicago Bears and he’d return some time later, Ian Rapoport reported the standout back would go on Injured Reserve:

Despite Aaron Rodgers’ struggles and the running game being middle-of-the-road at best, the Packers still hold the No. 6 spot in the NFC and a playoff position.

The quarterback is having one of his worst statistical seasons of memory, with a quarterback rating of 88, while tossing for 10 touchdowns and four interceptions. Passing yards-wide, Rodgers is No. 26 in the NFL, behind guys like Brian Hoyer (who has started only four games) and rookie Dak Prescott.
