McCarthy: Eddie Lacy is ready

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Packers HC Mike McCarthy didn’t share his thoughts about running back Eddie Lacy’s condition, which was of interest after McCarthy opened up the offseason by saying that Lacy was too heavy last season.

Lacy’s fitness came up on Tuesday as the Packers got set for their first practice of camp and the review was positive, although McCarthy added that it would be the last.

“Eddie is ready,” McCarthy said, via Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I’m done talking about people’s weight. I felt like I gave an honest answer.”

Fantasy Impact: 

The story added if the Packers had doubts about Lacy's condition, he could have been placed on the PUP list. The good news is it appears he was given the go to get on the field. Lacy worked this offseason with P90X creator Tony Horton, who estimates that Lacy lost 15-20 lbs over the course of two months. If he keeps the weight off for the rest of the summer, he has a good chance of returning as a top-10 RB, something he was his first two seasons.
