Before coach Mike McCarthy sent Eddie Lacy home for the summer, he issued something of a warning to the Green Bay Packers running back.
In so many words, he said he hoped Lacy wouldn't revert to his old habits during the break before training camp.
It appears Lacy listened.
According to a source, the Packers running back reunited this summer with trainer Tony Horton, the P90X founder who worked out Lacy shortly after last season after McCarthy gave him an ultimatum to lose weight.
In his first two seasons, Lacy posted back-to-back top 8 finishes in both standard and PPR formats. In 2015, he finished 25th and 32nd, respectively, struggling both with his health and staying out of Mike McCarthy’s doghouse. His playing weight was a major topic of conversation all year, and to his credit, Lacy followed through this offseason by working out with 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 to the top 10.
