Packers RB Eddie Lacy Officially Headed to the Pro Bowl

As predicted earlier this week, Green Bay Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacy was officially added to the NFL's Pro Bowl roster on Wednesday.

Lacy was tabbed for the league's all-star game as a first alternate when Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings withdrew due to injury, but even if he didn't, Lacy would have gone anyway by virtue of either Frank Gore of the San Francisco 49ers or Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks headed to the Super Bowl.

“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.”

Lacy is the first Green Bay rookie running back to be selected to the Pro Bowl since John Brockington in 1971 and the first Packers RB to be named to the all-star game since Ahman Green in 2004.

Well deserved recognition.
Don't get hurt.

Glad to see Lacy getting the recognition he deserves.

Why was Frank Gore selected to the pro bowl?
McCoy, Forte, Morris, Peterson, Lynch, and Lacy all had more rushing yards then Gore.

Two words: fan voting.

Charles and Matthews had more yards as well.

Yeah, I was just referring to the NFC guys. But your right.
