Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson was very impressed with what he saw from rookie running back Eddie Lacy during last weekend’s scrimmage.
“He looked a lot like he did at Alabama,” said Thompson, regarding Lacy’s performance.“He’s a very decisive runner, he’s strong, he’s powerful, he’s big. He puts a lot of pressure on a defense I think because if he gets on the edge he’s pretty difficult to handle.
“So far so good. We’ll see.”
Hopefully Lacy will run this way the entire season. He first has to get healthy now that he was reportedly held out of Wednesday’s practice.
