Eddie Lacy is back. Kind of.
It appears Lacy has resumed working out to some degree after missing the majority of the 2016 season with an ankle injury (that the Packers probably caused).
Water training is typically the precursor to running and more heavy-duty training when an athlete has an ankle or leg injury of this severity. We doubt Lacy is at that point yet. The last we heard, he was still wearing a walking boot. That was back in January.
While there’s plenty of time for Lacy to rehab and get back in shape, the real question is where he’ll be playing next season. Lacy is a free agent coming off a major injury, who also has had weight issues.
We’d love to see him return to the Packers, but if he does, we suspect that will be via a short-term, low-risk contract layered with incentives.
Lacy would form a nice tandem with Ty Montgomery though, wouldn’t he?
