    The Green Bay Packers are concerned about the health of running back Eddie Lacy and his availability for Thursday nights game against the Chicago Bears, according to a source. Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys China .Lacy was the only active halfback for the Packers in their 30-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. He was playing with a sprained left ankle and was held to just 65 yards on 17 carries.He didnt practice Monday and will miss practice again on Tuesday, coach Mike McCarthy said, adding that Lacy was very sore.I cant see him playing against the Bears, the source told ESPN.Lacys availability for Thursday night might have played a role in motivating general manager Ted Thompson to make his first player trade since 2010. The Packers traded a conditional late-round pick to the?Kansas City Chiefs?for running back Knile Davis.The Packers also will promote rookie running back Don Jackson from the practice squad for Thursday night, a source told ESPNs Rob Demovsky. The plan is for Jackson to be active Thursday night against the Bears so the Packers are not left with just one natural halfback, as they were against the Cowboys.Running back James Starks had knee surgery this week and is expected to be out a couple of weeks, McCarthy said. Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys . LeBron James and Chris Bosh didnt need any more. Williams scored 11 points in 10 minutes, Alan Anderson scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets finished the exhibition season with a 108-87 win over the Miami Heat on Friday night. Cheap Jerseys Authentic . -- Hunter Smith scored the winner with just 12 seconds remaining in the third period as the Oshawa Generals edged the host Sarnia Sting 5-4 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. EVANSTON, Ill. -- Look at Northwestern now.The Wildcats head into Saturdays game against Indiana looking more like the team they thought they would be, with their offense clicking and the wins starting to pile up, after they seemed to be falling apart.Northwestern (3-3, 2-1 Big Ten) comes in with back-to-back wins against Iowa and Michigan State and an offense that is clicking after being held to single digits against an FCS team. Indiana (3-3, 1-2), meanwhile, gave Nebraska all it could handle in a 27-22 loss last week.I think its the way that weve been preparing, Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said. But you start to get the DNA of your squad, and we were so inconsistent that we needed to have, I think, much greater attention to detail.The Wildcats have won three of four since dropping the first two games at home to Western Michigan and FCS member Illinois State. And they have had no trouble scoring in their past two games.Northwestern put up its highest point total in 16 years in a 54-40 victory at defending Big Ten champion Michigan State . That came on the heels of a 38-31 victory at Iowa two weeks earlier. The 92 points in a two-game stretch matched the Wildcats highest total since they combined to do it against California and Syracuse to start the 2013 season.Indiana is likely to make a bowl for the second straight season after ending a seven-year drought, but the Hoosiers know Northwestern is on a roll.They are playing good in all three phases, Indiana coach Kevin Wilson said. You dont go on the road and get Iowa and Michigan State a lot, you dont get them back-to-back, and you dont get them the way they did. They played strong football. Its going to be a strong challenge for us.Here are some things to look for when the Wildcats and Hoosiers meet:BETTER WITH DEFEENSEThe Hoosiers long-maligned defense has been holding its own this season, as No. 8 Nebraska found out last week . The Cornhuskers managed to score only 27 points (iincluding an interception return for a TD) and pile up 360 total yards. Cheap NFL Jerseys China. . Indiana and San Diego State are the only FBS schools that have not allowed a rush of 30 or more yards all season.ON GROUND, IN AIRIndiana will be tested by the Big Tens leading rusher and receiver. Northwesterns Justin Jackson is coming off a career game against Michigan State and so is receiver Austin Carr.Jackson leads the Big Ten with 698 yards rushing after going off for a personal-best 188 yards and two touchdowns against the Spartans.Carr caught a career-high 11 passes for 130 yards and two touchdowns. The senior is tops in the conference in receptions (43), yards receiving (595), touchdowns (8) and yards receiving per game (99.2). He has 11 more catches, 129 more yards and two more touchdown catches than anyone else in the Big Ten.CATCHING A BREAK?After playing three straight top 20 teams and three undefeated teams in the last four games, the Hoosiers face a much more manageable second-half schedule that begins with Northwestern. It certainly doesnt mean this will be easy. Though the teams havent played since 2012, the Wildcats have won four straight in the series.UNDER PRESSUREAfter setting a Northwestern record with four sacks against Iowa, defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo had two more last week. That gave the senior a Big Ten-leading seven on the season. The Wildcats have 16 sacks on the season after collecting six against Iowa and four against Michigan State.SEEING TWOIndiana added a wrinkle last week when it rotated quarterbacks , with Zander Diamont complementing Richard Lagow.Diamont provided a spark, completing 5 of 7 passes for 49 yards and running for 31 yards on eight attempts. Lagow, a junior-college transfer, is second in the Big Ten in yards passing per game (276) and tied for second in touchdown passes (12). Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '
