GREEN BAY -- It looks like the Packers will be without their workhorse running back for the foreseeable future.
In a tweet Tuesday evening, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Lacy's injury was worse than originally disclosed, and he'll be out for "several weeks":
Sources: The #Packers are expected to be without workhorse RB Eddie Lacy for several weeks. It's more than a sprained ankle.

The news follows reports earlier Tuesday that cornerback Sam Shields was placed on injured reserve.
The Packers take on the Chicago Bears Thursday night at Lambeau Field.
