Lacy learning on job in Packers backfield

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Rookie Eddie Lacy is learning on the job in the Packers' backfield.

Lacy was drafted in the second round out of Alabama to help give Green Bay's running game a boost. He had a so-so NFL debut last week with 14 carries for 41 yards and his first career touchdown.

Lacy also fumbled deep in his own territory. The turnover set up a touchdown for San Francisco in the season-opening 34-28 loss.

Coach Mike McCarthy says Lacy is off to a good start this week getting ready for the Redskins in the home opener Sunday. He wants Lacy to work on the little things and details in practice.

The passing game with Aaron Rodgers appears to be in midseason form. But the Packers also want to limit their series of three-and-outs.
