It really is a shame that Harris is down and the "load" wouldn't have to shoulder the load.. but it is what it is and Lacy better pick it up until either Franklin or someone else (I lack faith in Starks) pick their game up enough to provide a tandem of sorts.

Eddie Lacy learns lesson during 'timeout' after fumble

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Eddie Lacy has been nervous before every game he's ever played in. In the minutes leading up to the BCS National Championship eight months ago when he rushed for 140 yards and scored two touchdowns, Lacy had butterflies. Throughout his football life it has always taken him a few plays until the jitters go away.

As Lacy stepped on the field for his NFL debut in San Francisco, the Green Bay Packers' second-round pick -- and rookie starting running back -- was more nervous than he'd ever been. Unlike his typical routine of needing to get hit a couple times before feeling somewhat relaxed, the pressure-packed situation was weighing on Lacy longer than usual as he carried the ball early and often against the 49ers.

Less than four minutes into the second quarter, the fifth rushing attempt of Lacy's career came with a very important lesson: A fumble gets you benched.

"He was definitely in a timeout," running backs coach Alex Van Pelt said, utilizing a punishment technique he had used with his three children.

Lacy spent the remainder of the first half on the sideline. Lacy's fumble was recovered by the defense and set up San Francisco only 14 yards from the end zone, resulting five plays later in a touchdown.

I wanna see Franklin play. Give the guy some screens and just let Lacy smack people in their mouths. I believe in the guy. I hope Franklin gets a chance to carry/catch the ball this week.

He'll get a shot. He needs work on his pass pro.

When he does get a shot, I hope they run some screens. Dude's not a "between the tackles" guy. Get him in space and he can beat anybody.

Packers | Johnathan Franklin expected to contribute
Sat, 14 Sep 2013 08:38:28 -0700

Green Bay Packers running backs Alex Van Pelt said the team expects RB Johnathan Franklin to contribute this season even though he did not get an offensive snap Week 1. "I think he is ready. I think he will help us this year. He'll definitely contribute on the offensive side of the ball. He's got a unique talent and ability in space. Going into that [San Francisco] game, it was probably good for him to sit and kind of watch the other guys. As the season goes on, he'll probably ask more of him," Van Pelt said.
