Eddie Lacy struggles in running game vs. Jets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy was done in by a tough matchup Sunday, gaining just 43 yards on 13 carries while catching two of his three targets for 18 yards in his team's 31-24 win over the Jets.

The Packers found it much easier moving the ball in the passing game, and Lacy finished the first half with just five yards on three carries. He's managed to average just over three yards per carry in his first two games, though he did face rough matchups in each of those games. He could find things easier next week when the Packers travel to Detroit.


Eddie Lacy active vs. Jets in Week 2


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mike McCarthy: Eddie Lacy progressing quickly


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Packers coach Mike McCarthy confirmed running back Eddie Lacy is nearing the end of the league's mandated concussion protocol. "He's had good workouts," McCarthy told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He progressed very quickly."

Lacy attended practice Wednesday but did not participate. If he practices Thursday when the team dons full pads, Lacy will be on track to face the Jets on Sunday.

Real test for Eddie Lacy comes Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Thursday will be a pivotal day for Packers running back Eddie Lacy, who's recovering from a concussion. That's when the team will practice in full pads for Sunday's game against the Jets.

The Packers were in shells Wednesday. Though Lacy did not practice, he was present, typically a sign a player is in the final stages of the recovery process, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.


Eddie Lacy not practicing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Eddie Lacy passes first step in concussion protocol


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy passed the first part of the league's concussion protocol Friday, just one day after he was forced out of the season opener against the Seahawks.

"I was told Eddie feels very good today," coach Mike McCarthy said during a press conference Friday, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He has already started the concussion protocol and has cleared the first step."

The Packers have extra time off until their Week 2 game against the Jets, thanks to Thursday's kickoff. Whether Lacy will be able to practice next week and play Sunday remains to be seen, however. 


Eddie Lacy struggles, leaves with concussion


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy had a tough game before leaving with a concussion.

Lacy gained just 34 yards on 12 carries, averaging 2.8 yards per rush. He also caught three passes for 11 yards. Lacy had to leave the game in the fourth quarter after taking a touch hit after a 12 yard catch. He stayed in the game for the next play, picking up three yards on a rush, but left after that. After the game, it was determined Lacy is dealing with a concussion. The Packers don’t play for 10 days, and Lacy will be evaluated throughout the week. 

If he can play, Lacy will take on the Jets Week 2. 


Eddie Lacy dealing with a concussion


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Seahawks. 

Lacy is being evaluated for a possible concussion. It's unclear if he'll return to action tonight. Lacy has gained 34 yards on 12 carries thus far. 


Eddie Lacy to have his hands full Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy will have his hands full Week 1 against the Seahawks.

Lacy is coming off a tremendous rookie season, in which he rushed for nearly 1,200 yards and scored 11 touchdowns. He didn’t get a ton of use during the preseason, but seemed to be in midseason form. Lacy rushed for 61 yards on 11 carries, good for a 5.5 average over two preseason games. He also managed to run in a touchdown.

Though he looked strong in the preseason, Lacy should have a tough time against the Seahawks Week 1. Seattle allowed just 12.32 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs last season. That was the second-lowest rate in the league. While the Seahawks lost three defensive linemen during the offseason, the club is thought to still have the top-rated Fantasy defense.

In many circles, Lacy was considered a strong Fantasy pick after the elite four running backs were off the board. With that in mind, it’s unlikely he’ll be benched in many leagues Week 1. There are better matchups out there, but Lacy is a tough player to sit. Given Green Bay’s offensive capabilities, he’s still a decent start even against the best Fantasy defenses. 


Healthy scratches dominate inactive list for Packers

Coach: Eddie Lacy could lead NFL in yards from scrimmage


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Packers running backs coach Sam Gash said second-year back Eddie Lacy has a chance to lead the NFL in yards from scrimmage.

"He has the capability of being the leading rusher and maybe even combined yards if he catches a lot of balls," Gash told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "I absolutely do think that.

"I think he's a bell cow. He's a big guy, and he's physical."

Lacy ranked 14th last year with 1,435 yards from scrimmage. He was removed in some passing and two-minute situations last season, but has been groomed to play in all situations this year, the paper said.


Eddie Lacy catches fire on opening drive of preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy was in midseason form during Friday's dress rehearsal game at home against the Raiders.

Lacy ripped runs of 12 and 17 yards on the opening drive before capping it off with a 1-yard touchdown run. The Packers ran a no-huddle offense on their first scoring drive. James Starks took over for Lacy, ending his night. He finished with six carries for 36 yards and a touchdown, averaging 6.0 yards per carry.

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.

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.”
