GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Packers have put top running back Eddie Lacy on injured reserve, another blow to Green Bay’s scuffling offense.

The Packers announced the move Thursday, hours before hosting the Chicago Bears. Lacy has been bothered by a left ankle injury and backup James Starks isn’t playing this week because of a knee injury.

The Packers traded a conditional draft pick to Kansas City this week for Knile Davis. They also signed Don Jackson to the active roster from the practice squad.

Davis was buried on the depth chart with the Chiefs and Jackson is a rookie from Nevada. Both could be taking handoffs from quarterback Aaron Rodgers soon as Green Bay (3-2) tries to catch up in the NFC North race against divisional foe Chicago (1-5).
