A source tells ESPN's Rob Demovsky that Eddie Lacy has lost 15-18 pounds since the end of last season.
"He looked good," Aaron Rodgers said after seeing Lacy at Monday's workout. "Obviously been doing a lot of P90X." Lacy drew similarly positive reviews from Jordy Nelson and Mike Daniels. Multiple photos have circulated on social media showing a cut up Lacy looking nothing like the out-of-shape bruiser he was in 2015. Headed into the final year of his rookie contract, Lacy will probably be in the best shape of his NFL career. Apr 18 - 3:03 PM

In-house reporter Mike Spofford suggests the Packers could move on from Eddie Lacy after this year.

Lacy’s conditioning led to career lows in total yards (946) and touchdowns (5) last season. The Packers have a window to extend him while his value is low, but are expected to let Lacy play out his contract year. Reportedly in the best shape of his life this offseason, Lacy is a prime bounce-back candidate.
Apr 16 - 4:21 PM's Albert Breer reports Eddie Lacy has undergone a "remarkable" physical transformation this offseason.

What Breer considers "remarkable" is Lacy's "redistribution of weight" from his midsection to his shoulders and arms. "I know the people around Eddie Lacy really feel like the Packers are going to be happy with what they see when Lacy reports for the offseason program next week," Breer said. It jibes with what everyone else has been saying this offseason, including coach Mike McCarthy. Lacy appears to have gotten the message after his sluggish 2015.
Apr 12 - 2:53 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy believes Eddie Lacy's weight-loss program is going well.

"I saw a picture or two," McCarthy said. "It sounds like things are going well for him. He looked like that rookie guy." Lacy has spent the majority of the offseason working out with P90X founder Tony Horton, with the sessions ongoing in California. It seems like a given Lacy will report to camp in great shape, but the test will be maintaining it through a grueling season.

Eddie Lacy has "(begun) a program" with P90X founder Tony Horton.

The workouts will continue "well into the offseason." Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed the news, while also disputing reports that Lacy was as much as 30 pounds overweight last season. McCarthy is confident Lacy will "learn from this." Going on 26, Lacy will be a prime bounce-back candidate in 2016.
Feb 25 - 6:34 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he is confident Eddie Lacy's conditioning will be better in 2016.

"I have great confidence [Lacy's conditioning] is something that will improve and is improving as we speak," McCarthy said. Lacy reportedly played "at least" 25 pounds heavier than his playing weight last season, and it showed on the field. Entering the final year of his rookie deal, Lacy's future with the organization will depend on his ability to get and stay in shape this year.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel believes it's "a good bet" Eddie Lacy played "at least" 25 pounds heavier than his playing weight of 234.

In other words, beat writer Rob Reischel thinks Lacy was near 260. Lacy's weigh-in at Alabama's 2013 Pro Day was 5-foot-11, 231. We've gone back to check Lacy's college tape as a comparison tool, and he looks considerably more fit and slender in Crimson Tide than Lacy appeared to be this past year. Wrote Reischel, "In fact, from the waist down, you couldn't tell the difference between Lacy and 301-pound center Corey Linsley."
Feb 4 - 12:04 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Packers want Eddie Lacy to lose 30 pounds.

Rapoport added Lacy is "committed" to losing the weight, "through camp or a fitness program." Lacy refused to talk about his weight during the year, but the Packers made it very clear after the season Lacy's weight was a big concern. Lacy had career lows in carries (187), total yards (946) and touchdowns (5) in 2015. He will need a much better showing in the final year of his rookie deal to land a long-term extension.
Feb 1 - 11:40 AM

The creator of P90X, Tony Horton, has personally reached out to Eddie Lacy and offered to get him into shape this offseason.

The P90X workout was all the craze a few years back and one of the more successful regimens on the market. Horton personally worked with Ray Lewis a handful of years ago. "The Packers will get him ready for the season," Horton said. "My job will be to get the weight off and help him eat better." The second part is key; Lacy needs to eat much cleaner as he enters a contract year. No agreement has been struck, but Lacy would be wise to take Horton's help after coach Mike McCarthy called out Lacy for being too heavy after the season.

At his end-of-the-season presser on Monday, coach Mike McCarthy called out Eddie Lacy for being too heavy.

"He's got a lot of work to do," McCarthy said. "His offseason last year was not good enough and he never recovered from it. He cannot play at the weight he played at this year." Lacy was noticeably portly all throughout the season and had his worst season to date. He's listed at 234 pounds on the Packers' official website, but there were whispers he was in the 260s and beyond in 2015. Now heading into a contract year, Lacy needs to get on a weight-loss regimen.

Eddie Lacy rushed 12 times for 89 yards and caught both of his targets for two yards in the Packers' Divisional Round loss to the Cardinals.

Lacy was bottled up for most of the game, but he took advantage of wide-open cutback lanes to rumble for a 14 yarder and a 61 yarder on back-to-back plays in the third quarter. The 61-yard gain was the longest run of his career. He managed 14 yards on his other 10 carries. It is a fitting end to what was an up-and-down season for the third-year back. Despite a run of three 100-yard games in four weeks, Lacy finished the regular season with 758 yards on 187 carries. He scored five total touchdowns after averaging 12 through his first two seasons. With James Starks an unrestricted free agent, it is possible Lacy finally has the backfield to himself next season, but a lack of carries was not his only issue. He needs to come back healthy and in shape for the offseason program.
Jan 17 - 12:52 AM

Eddie Lacy (ribs) is listed as probable for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Cardinals.

Lacy practiced fully on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. He rushed for 63 yards and a touchdown Sunday against Washington but lost a fumble and was out-touched by James Starks 14 to 12. Lacy produced 88 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown in a loss to the Cardinals back in Week 16.
Jan 15 - 1:56 PM

Eddie Lacy (ribs) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The Packers are just monitoring his reps. Lacy will be healthy against Arizona, but has workload concerns after losing a late-game fumble in the Wild Card Round.
Jan 13 - 5:01 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed 12 times for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' Wild Card win over Washington.

Lacy started off brutally ineffective (4-6) before ripping off back-to-back monster runs in the third quarter, the first gaining 11 on a fourth-and-one play and the second 30 yards on the very next snap, setting up James Starks' short touchdown. The 30-yarder was Lacy's longest run of the season. Lacy hit pay dirt in the fourth quarter on a three-yard dive. Lacy is less likely to have rushing success against the Cardinals in the Divisional Round. A late-game lost fumble against the Redskins could also pose a threat to Fat Eddie's playing time.
Jan 10 - 8:31 PM

Eddie Lacy (ribs) is listed as probable for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Redskins.

He was a limited participant at practice this week. Lacy is coming off a rollercoaster regular season but has a nice matchup against a Washington squad that allowed the seventh-most rushing yards in the league this year.
