Packers RB Eddie Lacy: 'I'm definitely still going to run the way I run.' - [Full Article]

Eddie Lacy wants to keep running the way he runs without getting any more concussions. He just hasn’t quite figured out how.

“I can only be myself. I was drafted here because of the way I run,” Lacy said. “It’s just trying to alter it, make sure I’m still physical, but keep the concussions out of it somehow. But I’m definitely still going to run the way I run.”

Lacy added he’s ditching the prototype helmet he’s been wearing thus far this season – the one with the hexagon-shaped cutout above the facemask for absorbing contact – and going back to his old helmet for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets.

Fantasy Impact: 

His owners would like him to avoid contact to the head if at all possible, but it doesn't sound like Lacy is going to change his style in a major way. He did say he wanted to "keep the concussions out of it," so at least he's thinking about how he might do that.
