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.

After suffering a hamstring injury earlier in the week, running back Eddie Lacy’s status for Friday night’s preseason game against the Cardinals is in question.
Lacy missed his second straight day of practice on Thursday and Packers head coach Mike McCarthy isn’t sure if he’ll play.
I would be surprised if Lacy plays. The most important thing is for him to get healthy...
We reported earlier today that Packers running back Eddie Lacy wasn’t practicing today.
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that Lacy is sidelined with a pulled hamstring, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
I’m sure Lacy won’t be playing in this week’s preseason game.

Despite recovering from a toe injury that caused him to drop
in the recent NFL Draft, Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy has
impressed his new team when he’s been on the field. That wasn’t the case
yesterday, as Lacy was sidelined by a hamstring injury, causing him to miss
practice. While hamstring’s can be tricky injuries that have a knack of
lingering for extended...
There has been a lot of debate over who will be the starting RB for the Packers. Last week the picture of Lacy looking like Ron Dayne with dreads surfaced and Twitter went berserk. The Packers will run more than people think and could set Lacy up for plenty of short TDs, if they don’t give it to Kuhn or something stupid like that.
ESPN’s Rob Demovsky had this to say about...
It didn’t take long for Green Bay Packers rookie Eddie Lacy to take control of the training camp battle to be the team’s starting running back – in fact, it took him just one live performance to show the Packers he is exactly what they thought he was going to be.
Sure it was only a preseason intra-squad scrimmage but the fact that Lacy carried the ball eight times for 65 yards...
Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb left practice early on Tuesday with a bicep injury. The Good news is that he returned to practice today.
The bad news for the Packer is that running back Eddie Lacy is now out. We’ll find out when head coach Mike McCarthy talks to the media after practice.

Rookie running backs are often very tempting to grab in the middle rounds of a fantasy draft. The potential for an unlimited ceiling and keeper value is difficult to overlook. This year the depth at RB is unbelievably shallow. The top tier is well established, but moving outside of the top 20 gets ugly, and leaves a lot to chance. 2013 is not the year to take that chance on a rookie...
What I learned at Thursday’s practice: Aaron Rodgers can throw a football. Pretty well.
The Packers will kick off the 2013 preseason tomorrow night at home against the Arizona Cardinals. On Thursday morning at Ray Nitschke Field–the final practice before the games start–the team opted to practice in shells, despite the fact that it was originally scheduled to be in full pads...
Eddie Lacy was the star of the Green Bay Packers' intrasquad scrimmage last Saturday night. But coach Mike McCarthy isn't ready to give the rookie the starting halfback job quite yet at least not until he gets a look at DuJuan Harris.
"I'm excited to see when DuJuan Harris comes back because I view him as our starter" McCarthy told USA TODAY Sports on Thursday...
Time and a disappointing career haven't taken away from Ted Thompson's belief in Vince Young's promise. "I'm married now, a grown man, 30 years old," Young said. "I've definitely been through the highs and the lows and different things like that."
General manager Ted Thompson isn't panicking about the idea of a 21-year-old kid who could be entering his senior season. So far, the former Colorado standout isn't panicking, either.
Of all the transactions Ted Thompson has ever made, the acquisition of free agent quarterback Vince Young ranks as one of the biggest head scratchers.
A six year veteran, Young brings to Green Bay a resume’ consisting of 46 touchdowns, 51 interceptions, completing less than 58% of his passes while compiling a 74.9 passer rating.
The former third pick in the 2006 NFL Draft had...
Veteran Bills placekicker Rian Lindell could be available later this month General manager Ted Thompson chose not to use unrestricted free agency or the draft to solve his problem at kicker, so now the Green Bay Packers will have to wait until the end of training camp to upgrade the position. The alternative is to go into the season with either Mason Crosby or Giorgio Tavecchio,...
Vince Young went 30-17 as the starting quarterback for the Tennessee Titans
Ted Thompson couldn’t stop gushing over Vince Young in the weeks leading up to the 2006 draft. ”The more I watch him now, the more I realize that I haven’t seen anyone quite like him,” said Green Bay’s normally low-key general manager. “Usually, when you’re scouting a player, you think to yourself...
