Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that running back Eddie Lacy needs to lose weight this off-season.
“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, a 2013 Pro Bowl selection, rushed for a career-worst 758 yards on 187 carries in 15 games this season. The 25-year-old recorded three rushing touchdowns to go along with two through the air for the Packers.
In his team’s 26–20 overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Saturday’s divisional round, Lacy tallied 89 yards on 12 carries.
He was a second-round selection by the Packers in the 2013 NFL draft out of Alabama.
