Eddie Lacy runs 40-yard dash in 4.59 seconds

ESPN - [Full Article]

After putting off the NFL combine and allowing time for his injured hamstring to heal, Eddie Lacy ran his much-anticipated 40-yard dashes Thursday on the University of Alabama campus.

One scout timed Lacy as having run a 4.59 and 4.62 in the 40. His top time would have placed him 15th among running backs who competed in March's NFL combine.

Lacy said he's close to 100 percent healthy after getting hurt during training.

"During my 40, I was a little nervous about actually opening up but I ran a pretty good time, so I'm satisfied with that," he said.

Fantasy Impact: 

Lacy also showed solid hands by catching all the balls thrown to him in a passing drill. There is some concern about his not being in great shape during the shuttle run, but it's to be expected since he's coming off a hamstring injury.
