A day after a photo of running back Eddie Lacy’s fat ass started popping up all over the Internet, the Green Bay Packers rookie had his first impact on a training camp practice.

The Packers featured Lacy in their red zone drills, which were a major part of practice and he didn’t disappoint. Lacy had four carries and scored three times. He also turned a sure loss into a short gain by using the spin move he became known for at Alabama.

“Today I feel like it was my best day since I’ve been out here,” Lacy said after practice. “I was comfortable with everyone, and I feel like I ran smooth and made good reads, and I just hit the hole the way I was supposed to.”

So what about the weight?

The Packers list Lacy at 230, but he was at 238 during minicamp and he looks bigger now than he was then. On Tuesday, Lacy wouldn’t say how much he weighed and neither would anyone else, but coach Mike McCarthy was quick to rush to his defense.

“Going through the conditioning test, he was fine. If we had any concern about any guys they wouldn’t be on the field,” McCarthy said, via Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin.com.

As long as Lacy remains on the field, he’ll get into shape. And if he can run guys over like he looked to be doing on Tuesday, then who gives a shit how much he weighs?

    I think Lacy looks great. Who is gonna wanna tackle that monster? We’ve never really had a big feature-back before. I say take him to the Old Country Buffet every day…

    It’s girlfriends that you want to stay lean…

    Lacy can watch Scooby-Doo and eat Cheez-Its until his head turns orange for all I care, so long as he runs some mutha&*%$#^&&(*&@ over.

    Some defender once described tackling Ron Dayne during his college years: “Like catching a couch falling down a stairs.” Maybe Eddie can be that couch.

    Saw him at camp today and man was he playing hard. He and Datone Jones collided for the loudest hit of the day and lacy knocked Jones on his ass!

        In one on one drills with O and D lines Jones beat everyone he was up against. His move against Datko was easily his best, where he beat Datko off the ball and drove him to the ground.

    so….he’s fluffy?

    don’t give a crap what he weighs. We just need a running game to take the heat off 12.

    If I’m being optomistic, I would say the legitimate threat of a run would also help the line with pass protection. giving Rodgers more time to throw will be AWESOME!

    Wow. I mean WOW. He’s gotta be 260+ if he’s a pound. But so what? Not every NFL running back needs to have sub-5.0 40 speed.

    Two Words = Jerome Bettis.

    That’s what we hope he is reincarnate. Of course, we’d probably settle for a decent version of a younger Ced Benson.
