A familiar face will return to Lambeau Field for Sunday's week one kick off between the Seahawks and Packers. Running back Eddie Lacy will make his Seahawks debut against his former team of four years.

"Eddie Lacy has been an excellent player for us in the past," Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said. You just try to focus on the things that you think are his strengths and what he brings to that offense." 

At 5'11" 250 lbs, Lacy brings size and physicality to the Seattle backfield which is a little banged up at the moment. Starting running back Thomas Rawls is battling a high ankle sprain and is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest. If Rawls reps are limited, Packer fans will get to see a lot more of a former beloved teammate. 

"Eddie's a great teammate, he's a lot of fun to be around, he always has that infectious smile," quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. 

"I want our defense to dominate of course, but you know, after our game, I wish him nothing but the best," Packers running back Ty Montgomery said. "I love Eddie, he was a good friend of mine when he was here."
