It appears Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is tired of talking about running back Eddie Lacy’s weight. And if this is any indication, it appears Lacy showed up to training camp in the shape the Packers wanted him in.
McCarthy: Eddie is ready. I'm done talking about people's weight. I felt like I gave an honest answer (last time).
Lacy’s weight has been a topic of discussion all offseason.
It started when McCarthy publicly stated that he told Lacy to lose weight. It continued when McCarthy said Lacy still wasn’t at his target weight during the offseason program.
Lacy worked out throughout the offseason with celebrity trainer Tony Horton. That continued after the Packers’ offseason program ended.
Now that Lacy is presumably back in McCarthy’s good graces, we would expect him to become a featured part of the offense again. Lacy had a career-low 187 carries in 2015. His previous low was 246 in 2014.
