(WNFL) - San Francisco will not see the same Eddie Lacy they saw in Week-One -- when the Packers' rookie rushed for four yards in five carries, fumbled the ball away, and was benched for the rest of the first half. Lacy has not fumbled since -- and he set a Green Bay rookie record with 11-hundred-78 rushing yards in his first full regular season. Lacy is healthy once again, after getting over a sprained ankle from December 8th. And that's a bright spot for the Packers, as they get ready to host the 49'ers on Sunday in an N-F-C Wild Card matchup. Although he was limited, the former Alabama college star took part in his first full-speed padded practice yesterday since his injury. Packers' receiver James Jones says Lacy is a totally different back now than he was in his N-F-L debut. Jones said Lacy is quote, "way more comfortable, way more confident." He said the 49'ers will have to account for his improvement. Offensive coordinator Tom Clements says Lacy has gotten into a groove -- and it's hard for a solo tackler to get him down. He had trouble with asthma a few weeks ago -- but he now has an inhaler on the field, and the medical staff has been briefed on handling any attacks Lacy might suffer. Fourth-year back James Starks has stepped up his play as well, with a season-long 41 yard scamper against Chicago last week which helped set up a Green Bay touchdown.
