Eddie Lacy is Training with Tony Horton

Eddie Lacy

Remember when Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy was going to potentially train with fitness guru Tony Horton?

That is actually happening, according to Rob Demovsky.

Lacy has been consulting with Horton, the founder of P90X, since the end of the season. Packers coach Mike McCarthy dropped that knowledge at the combine.

“Eddie will take care of business,” McCarthy said. “I have great confidence that he will. I think we’ll see definitely a different guy in April, and more importantly in July.”

Lacy’s struggles have been well-documented. McCarthy publicly told him to lose weight following the 2015 season, a season in which Lacy registered career lows in carries, rushing yards and touchdowns.

There were reports that Lacy was nearly 30 pounds overweight during the season, but McCarthy disputed that notion this week.

“The numbers that have been out there about his weight are inaccurate,” McCarthy said. “The Green Bay Packers have never, ever asked him to lose 30 pounds. That’s totally out of the realm of what we’re talking about. That’s the facts there. He’ll learn from this.”

Now, we’re not exactly sure what P90X is supposed to do or if that’s what Lacy is actually doing, but keeping that guy in the gym and out of the buffet line is a step in the right direction.

Ironically, it appears this all happened because of TMZ.

    A step in the right direction, would have been to stay in shape and eat right during the off season in years past, so he comes into camp ready to train for a NFL season. I think that’s what a professional athlete does that takes his career seriously.

    But…it’s a contract year, so….time to get in shape.
