Packers RB Eddie Lacy leaves practice with foot issue


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/4/2015) Packers running back Eddie Lacy left practice Tuesday with what the team is labeling as a foot issue, per ESPN.com. 

"Eddie had some foot soreness," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "They just pulled him out there near the end."

Packers RB Eddie Lacy on dropping weight: 'I'm cool'


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/3/2015) Packers running back Eddie Lacy is an intimidating figure. The team lists him generously at 230 pounds, which makes people wonder how long can a running back that big keep up in the NFL. Lacy's not worried about that, nor does he mind his weight, per the Journal Sentinel.

"I'm cool," Lacy said after asked about the possibility of dropping some weight.

Lacy, unlike some of his teammates, took the offseason to simply rest the wear and tear off his body from last year's punishment.

"It took my body a long time," Lacy said. "For all the hits and stuff to go away. Resting definitely helps and after that I got after it a little bit."

Lacy rushed for 1,139 yards and nine touchdowns last season.


Packers RB Eddie Lacy won't hit the brakes in open field this year


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) The statistics say one thing. Packers featured back Eddie Lacy says another.

Lacy finished sixth in the NFL last year with 49 missed tackles, according to Pro Football Focus, which further reveals that his 690 yards after contact was topped only by four others. But he knows what he wants to improve on in 2015.

"Finishing runs," he declared to the Green Bay Press-Gazette. "A lot of times I'll get into the secondary and I'll stop my feet or, as my coach likes to say, 'Hit the brakes.' ... This year, I don't want to do do that. ... I want to get to the secondary and if there's a guy there, whoever it may be, instead of me hitting the air brakes, I want to push the gas and make it harder on him and maybe he'll miss a tackle and I'll break a long one."

Lacy was among the most productive all-around backs in the league a year ago. He finished with 1,139 yards rushing on a 4.6 YPC average and added 427 yards receiving. He scored 13 touchdowns.


Packers want to keep RB Eddie Lacy fresh this season


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is working on ways to keep running back Eddie Lacy fresh this season, reports the Journal Sentinel.

McCarthy had talks with Lacy at the end of the last two seasons talking about his number of snaps and what he expected of the running back.

"I really felt that last year's conversation was more important than this year's, the ability to make a huge jump from Year One to Two, being a three-down player, that was something we stressed from Day One, and I thought he delivered," McCarthy said at the NFL owners meetings this week.

The head coach liked the way that the team used Lacy last season, limiting his snaps early in the year before increasing them as the season wore on.

"Maybe not run attempts," McCarthy said of hitting the target he set. "But I thought we were really smart the way we used him....I thought his pass protection he made a huge jump, and his ability to play out of the backfield.

"Eddie has excellent hands, and just his understand and his feel with Aaron, he definitely made a step."

In his first two seasons in the NFL, the 24-year-old has 2,317 yards rushing and 20 touchdowns. He has also added 77 receptions for 684 yards and four touchdown catches.

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

Packers RB Eddie Lacy had bad asthma attack in second quarter


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/11/2015) Packers running back Eddie Lacy said he suffered an asthma attack in the sub-freezing temperatures at Lambeau Field on Sunday and had trouble breathing, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Lacy took himself out in the second quarter and used his inhaler on the sideline while James Starks replaced him.

"You know your body is good enough to go out and play," Lacy told the paper after the 26-21 playoff win over the Cowboys. "But ... you just can't breathe. And it's a breathing thing. It's not something you want to go out and risk...risk something bad happening. There's nothing I can do about it. It's a medical condition. I take my inhaler, I do everything I'm supposed to do. When it happens, it happens."

Lacy still finished with 101 yards on 19 carries. His asthma shouldn't be a problem in next Sunday's NFC Championship Game at Seattle: Temperatures are supposed to be in the mid-40s.

Eddie Lacy keeps James Starks at bay


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/14/2014) Though Packers running James Starks impressed as a change-of-pace option and, later, injury fill-in for starter Eddie Lacy in Week 14, he was back to playing strictly a backup role with Lacy full-go Week 15 at Buffalo, rushing four times for 19 yards.

And really, you should have expected as much. Week 14 was Lacy's third game in four with at least 90 rushing yards. He has not just one touchdown, but two, in three of his last five. He's back to being the first-round back you drafted him to be.

Starks, with his average of 4.2 yards per carry, is a fine handcuff option, and you certainly weren't wrong to add him given the concern over Lacy's hip, but yeah, Lacy is here to stay, putting up stud numbers even against a Bills defense that entered the day ranked eighth against the run.


Packers' Eddie Lacy scores rushing touchdown No. 8 in Week 15


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Lacy got off to a fast start, rushing for 71 yards in the first quarter. He scored on a 1-yard run early in the second quarter. He failed to make much of an impact the rest of the way and finished with 15 carries for 97 yards and a score. He also caught all two of his targets for 11 yards.

Lacy has 940 rushing yards on the year. He'll look to get back on track Week 16 against the Buccaneers.


Packers RB Eddie Lacy ruled active for Buffalo game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) As expected, Packers running back Eddie Lacy was officially deemed active for Sunday's game against Buffalo. Lacy was listed as probable leading up to the game despite nursing a hip injury. His workload is still yet to be determined.

Packers RB Eddie Lacy listed as probable for Week 15


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy was officially designated as probable for Sunday's game against the Bills, despite dealing with a hip injury, per the team's official website. Although he's listed as probable, his workload is still yet to be determined. According to coach Mike McCarthy, it appears as if Green Bay is preparing to use both Lacy and Starks in Week 15.

"I think probable is pretty confident. He's getting better. He did all the strength and conditioning work," McCarthy said, per ESPN."I feel very comfortable going with Eddie and James. [It's] Something we spent the whole offseason getting ready for, to be 3-down players."


Packers RB Eddie Lacy's status for Sunday remains unceratin


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy's status for Sunday's game remains uncertain, reports the Press-Gazette Media on Thursday. Lacy has been a limited participant in practice this week due to a hip injury he suffered Monday night against Atlanta.

CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported earlier in the week that Green Bay will be cautious with their second-year back moving forward. If he's unable to play, the team will turn to James Starks for the start.

"It all depends on how my body feels," Lacy said. "If I can go out and play through that pain without setting the team back or putting the team at a disadvantage, I'll go out and do that. If not, then I'm not going to risk that."


Packers to be cautious with Eddie Lacy


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) The Packers will be cautious with running back Eddie Lacy, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Lacy is dealing with a hip injury, but has been able to take part in limited practice this week. Even if he's cleared for the contest, Lacy may be used more carefully this week. James Starks typically gets a few series per game, and could see a slight increase in work depending on how concerned the team is about Lacy's injury.


Packers RB Lacy limited Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) If his amount of practice participation early Thursday is any indication, the hip problem plaguing Packers featured back Eddie Lacy could be worse than first anticipated.

Lacy did little to nothing during the media availability portion of the session, ESPN has reported. He had been listed as limited Wednesday, but mostly watched his teammates practice Thursday.

He sustained what has been termed a hip bruise late in the Monday night win over Atlanta.


Eddie Lacy able to practice Wednesday for Packers


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy was seen practicing Wednesday with the team after suffering a hip injury during Monday's game against the Falcons. 

Lacy, who had 13 carries for 73 yards and a touchdown rushing in Monday's win, is dealing with a bruised hip. 

The Packers take on the Bills in Week 15. 


Packers not deeply concerned with Eddie Lacy's hip injury


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2014) Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Tuesday the team is not overly concerned with running back Eddie Lacy’s injured hip.

He added that the team will know more Wednesday morning, but it seems Lacy will be able to play Sunday at Buffalo.

"I don't have high concern," McCarthy said.

Lacy suffered a bruised hip during Monday’s game against the Falcons and was unable to finish the game.


James Starks' worth hinges on Eddie Lacy's health


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/9/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy was cruising against the Falcons in Week 14, piling up 106 total yards on 13 carries and five catches, when a bruised hip forced him out of the game in the fourth quarter.

And by forced, I mean forced. In his own words, "I tried, but no."

Which allowed backup running back James Starks to ice the game with a 41-yard run on the team's next and final drive. That's where he got the majority of his 75 rushing yards. He also got four of his 10 carries on that one drive.

Which isn't to say he was an afterthought before then. He got six carries and two catches and even scored the teams' first touchdown of the day on a 3-yard run in the first quarter. But is he explosive enough to make an impact in Fantasy with only 8-10 touches? He hadn't been before Week 14.

That's why I think Lacy will actually have to miss time with this hip injury for Starks to be worth your while in Fantasy, and at this early stage of preparation for Week 15 at Buffalo, he says he won't. Obviously, Starks is worth adding just in case, but you shouldn't get your hopes up.
