Packers Rookie RB Lacy Gaining Weight?

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013 at 7:36 am

In the NFL training camps continue, and on Monday a twitter picture caused a bit of drama for Packers rookie Running back Eddie Lacy.

An action pic of the former Alabama star was snapped at practice, and the angle of the shot made Lacy look very overweight. David Woods of The Score posted the pic with a caption asking if Lacy had eaten fellow rookie RB Jonathan Franklin and the shot immediately blew up across the Twitter landscape.

In an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel from July 13, Lacy admitted, he’s been splurging too much on fast food. During off-season practices, he weighed in at 238 pounds.

Other pics of Lacy in more flattering poses were also tweeted out Monday to prove that he hasn’t gained that much weight, but either way it’s not a great sign for the rookie RB going forward. Lacy was viewed by many as the top RB in the draft.
