Eddie Lacy Named To Pro Bowl



The Green Bay Packers found out yesterday that their rookie running back Eddie Lacy will get a chance to play in the Pro Bowl. An injury to Vikings former league MVP Adrian Peterson has forced him to withdraw from the game opening the door for Lacy. He becomes the first Packers rookie running back to be selected to the Pro Bowl since John Brockington in 1971 and first overall since Ahman Green in 2004.

Lacy set franchise rookie records this season for rushing yards (1,178), rushing TDs (11) and rushing attempts (284) and tied the team’s rookie mark for 100-yard rushing games (four). He led all NFL rookies and ranked No. 8 among all players in rushing yards and was No. 3 in the league among all players with his 11 rushing TDs.

“I was extremely excited to hear that I am getting to go to the Pro Bowl after my rookie season,” said Lacy. “I feel like it gives me a great opportunity to thank my teammates, especially the offensive line, and coaches, for working with me and helping me accomplish what I did on the field this year.”

It would have been the first time since 2005 Green Bay was shutout from the annual All-Star game in Hawaii.

The Packers may also see a few from their list of seven alternates added to the Pro Bowl roster after this weekend’s NFC and AFC Championship games. The Pro Bowl is played next weekend to bridge the gap between Championship week and Super Bowl week.

Green Bay’s alternates include:

Aaron Rodgers, John Kuhn, Clay Matthews, Jordy Nelson, Josh Sitton, Sam Shields and Tramon Williams.

Lacy also needs your help to win Rookie of the Year balloting done on the NFL’s website. Fans can vote by clicking here: http://www.nfl.com/voting/rookies/2013/YEAR/0#.
