Eddie Lacy puts in work in preseason debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy made his preseason debut Saturday afternoon against the Rams.

Lacy ripped a 12-yard run on the opening play of the game. On the same drive, he caught a short dump from Aaron Rodgers for a gain of 18 yards. He was limited to one series of work with the first-team offense, but showed that he’s clearly in mid-season form. He took five handoffs for 25 yards and caught two passes for 22 yards.


Packers will be without three offensive starts Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) The Packers issued a list of three starters that will not participate in the preseason opener against the Titans Saturday night. The following players will sit out: Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy and Jordy Nelson.

Eddie Lacy off to sensational start in camp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/1/2014) The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says the lowlight of Eddie Lacy's training camp thus far was dropping a pass thrown from his position coach during a sideline drill. Everything else about Lacy's camp "couldn't have looked any better."

Lacy figures to remain as the Packers' primary running back, so long as he stays healthy.  


Packers preparing Eddie Lacy for massive workload


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Although running back Eddie Lacy had some short-term injuries at Alabama, the Packers don't seem concerned at all about giving him a massive workload, reports PackersNews.com. Lacy, 24, carried 284 times in 15 games as a rookie while averaging 21.2 touches.

"This is the NFL, you're not going to play this game until you're 45 or 50," said running backs coach Sam Gash, a former Pro Bowl fullback. "A lot of people, especially the media, try to make it out, 'He's got to last.' He'll last as long as he's meant to last.

"If he gets 40 (carries in a game), I'm OK with that. If he gets 10 carries, 20 carries, as long as we're productive and winning, I don't really care. I tell all the guys, be ready for 50 carries, that's the way you should train in the offseason, as if you're getting 50 carries a game. You're going to beat your body down and beat yourself up, so it's going to harden you mentally and physically. You're not going to wear yourself down. God made a machine, he's not going to let you down when you need him the most."

Eddie Lacy getting high praise


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy is already being compared to Ahman Green and Dorsey Levens as two of the best backs in Green Bay history, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Lacy had 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns nad 35 catches for 257 yards as a rooke in 2013. 

"He's a power back with a quick, nifty back's feet," Packers running backs coach Sam Gash said. "He's got great power, great balance. He's got feet that get him in and out of trouble."

Where does Lacy, who turned 24 in June, rank among the top backs?

"I'm going to speak selfishly and say Eddie would be my top guy," Gash replied. "I love the other guys; they're great backs. But he's younger and bigger than those guys, and he's got just as much balance. I like his demeanor and intensity."


Eddie Lacy to become a three-down back?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) Eddie Lacy rumbled for 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns last season en route to rookie of the year honors, but defenses will be more prepared for him this time around. To counter that, ESPN believes the Packers will try to keep Lacy on the field longer and become a three-down player. That would keep substitutions from slowing down the offense, helping the Packers get more plays per game. But it would also mean Lacy would have to get better at pass protection and improve even more as a receiver. 

To be fair, Lacy did catch 35 passes last season for 257 yards, and he had as many 20-plus-yard plays as a receiver as he did as a rusher (three). 


Eddie Lacy not content


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy set a franchise rookie rushing record with 1,178 yards last season while scoring 11 touchdowns. He won't take anyone by surprise in 2014, a challenge he's preparing for.

"I just need to regain focus," he told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "Don't let what I did last year flow over into this year. It's a new team, it's a new season and a new year pretty much."

"I know it's going to be a lot tougher than last season," Lacy added. "But we have the greatest quarterback in the NFL, and with him being back there, it's not just like they'll be able to stack the box and focus on me. They have to play him, because if not, he's just going to kill them through the air. So I still think I have a bit of breathing room.

"I think it will be tougher, because it's not like you're surprising everyone. When you first come in, people doubt you. They know what you did in college, but they don't know if it will translate to the next level. But once you get that year in and people see what you've done and it's no longer surprising, they're going to prepare for you the way they prepare for whoever else is good at that position."


Packers want to 'lessen the burden' on Eddie Lacy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy ran 305 times as a rookie, counting the playoff loss. He said he's ready for a similar workload this year, "but the coaching staff would like to lessen the burden for the between-the-tackles back, who ran the final month of the season on a badly sprained ankle," reports the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Coaches will use James Starks and DuJuan Harris to give Lacy some breathers.

"We haven’t sat down and figured out an ‘X’ number of carries for Eddie," offensive coordinator Tom Clements told the paper. "Eddie was a workhorse for us last year, and then when James got in there last year, he ran very hard. That was a great one-two punch. Now you factor in DuJuan and the other guys, it’s going to be interesting to see how that plays out."


Eddie Lacy feels fresh, ready to go


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/24/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy, who had 305 carries last year for 1,259 yards and 11 touchdowns, feels fresh heading into this season, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

During organized team activities and minicamp, Lacy ran with more pep in his step, so he appears ready to go.

"I'm definitely more focused but I'm also more relaxed," Lacy said. "I'm not tensed. I'm not trying to be too fast or too slow. Or if I make a mistake, I'm not killing myself over it. To me, that statement meant that if you know what you have to do then go out and do it. You don't have to do no more, no less. You don't have to go out and pretend like you're the best person on the field. We're all human, we're all going to make a mistake. But it's how you respond to that mistake."


Packers striving for offensive balance


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) The Packers finally have a running back in Eddie Lacy who can take pressure off Aaron Rodgers and the passing game, reports the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Defenses won't be able to let their safeties sit back in coverage.

“You hope they play you two-shell defense all day when Eddie’s in the backfield,” coach Mike McCarthy told the paper. “But there’s more to it than that, too, because you don’t want to be one-dimensional one way or the other. We’ve lived that life where we were heavy one-dimensional throwing it, and you’d like to have balance. It makes it easier, puts a little less stress on your quarterback, your best player.”


Eddie Lacy to see fewer 8-man fronts


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy won the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year award despite quarterback Aaron Rodgers missing seven games and most of another. Without Rodgers, defenses ganged up on the run.

Lacy overcame those 8-man fronts to rush for 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns. 

"The experience of losing Aaron last year has helped the development of our running game," coach Mike McCarthy said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "Running the ball against eight-man fronts is something you have to do in this league. Usually for us, it’s been more situational.

"But to do it on an every-down basis has been a real benefit for us. I think we can expand off that."


McCarthy: I want Eddie Lacy to be a three-down player


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that he'd like Eddie Lacy to "be a three-down player," according to ESPN. 

Lacy had 284 carries for 1,178 yards (4.1 yards per carry), with 11 touchdowns and 35 catches for 257 yards last year but played in over 80 percent of a game's snaps just four times out of 16 games according to ProFootballFocus.com, suggesting he focused on the first two downs for much of the season. 


Packers' plan for Eddie Lacy: 'Leave him alone'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2014) New Packers running backs coach Sam Gash said he has a plan for NFL offensive rookie of the year Eddie Lacy. "Leave him alone. Let him run," Gash said, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

"Just point him in the right direction and let him go," Gash continued. "Just talk to him about the little things, the part about being a pro. He’s a young guy and he plays hard, but there’s an art to being a pro. I’m definitely not going to mess him up. That’s something I learned a long time, let runners run."

Gash, a former fullback who blocked for Curtis Martin, said Lacy reminds him of Martin in some respects. Martin made the Hall of Fame after rushing for 14,101 yards and 90 touchdowns in his career.


Eddie Lacy, Sheldon Richardson capture rookie of the year honors


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2014) The awards for the 2013 NFL season were announced Saturday, and Packers running back Eddie Lacy and Jets defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson won rookie of the year honors for offense and defense, respectively.

Lacy, the 61st overall pick out of Alabama, had 284 carries for 1,178 yards (4.1 yards per carry), with 11 touchdowns in his first year in the league. Richardson, a first-round pick out of Missouri, registered 77 tackles and 3.5 sacks while starting all 16 games this season for the Jets.

Packers address running game with fullback signing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) Green Bay's signing of Ina Liaina, a true blocking fullback, indicates the Packers "may see a need for someone who can destroy linebackers before they get their hands on bruising halfback Eddie Lacy," reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Fullback John Kuhn, an impending free agent, was used more as a third-down pass blocker than a lead blocker.

The Packers trailed San Francisco 20-17 in the playoffs when they faced 1st-and-goal from the 9-yard line with just over six minutes left. They ran the ball with receiver Randall Cobb and tried two passes before settling for a field goal. Lacy did not get the ball.

Now, at least, Green Bay has a fullback on the roster.


Eddie Lacy makes more history


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy has been named to replace Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (foot, groin) in the Pro Bowl. That will make Lacy the first Packers rookie running back to play in the game since John Brockington in 1971, and the first Packers running back in general to play in the game since Ahman Green in 2004, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Eddie Lacy named top rookie by football writers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) The Professional Football Writers of America on Tuesday named Packers running back Eddie Lacy the league's top rookie. He set a franchise rookie record with 1,178 rushing yards and is the frontrunner to win the NFL's official Rookie of the Year award.

Eddie Lacy plows ahead for 81 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy performed admirably against a fierce 49ers' defense Sunday. He ran 21 times for 81 yards, adding two catches for 7 yards.

Lacy, whose longest run went 8 yards, was unable to score after finding the end zone five times in the previous four weeks. Fullback John Kuhn vultured a fourth-quarter touchdown. Lacy's season is over, but he'll likely win NFL Rookie of the Year.

Eddie Lacy scores late-game touchdown vs. Bears


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Packers running back Eddie Lacy came up big with his 11th touchdown of the season during Sunday’s make-or-break game against the Bears in Week 17.

Lacy appeared to be hobbled by a minor ankle injury all game, and shared carries with James Starks. On 1st-and-goal from the 6-yard-line, Lacy ran into the wall and bounced outside to the end zone early in the fourth quarter. He had 21 carries for 66 yards (3.1 yards per carry) and a touchdown. He also caught all two of his targets for 15 yards in a 33-28 victory, clinching the NFC North title.

Lacy finished the season with 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground. He'll look to stay in the end zone at home against the 49ers in the opening round of the playoffs. He scored a touchdown and rushed for 41 yards in the season opener at San Francisco.
