Eddie Lacy becomes second rookie to be added to Pro Bowl roster
Earlier this month, Cordarelle Patterson was added to the Pro-Bowl roster when Antonio Brown was selected as punt returner and as wide receiver. Well another rookie has been added to the Pro Bowl Roster.
Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy will replace Adrian Peterson at the Pro Bowl later this month.
The Minnesota Vikings running back can’t participate because of an injury.
Lacy set franchise rookie records this season for rushing yards (1,178), rushing touchdowns (11) and rushing attempts (284). He tied the team’s rookie mark for 100-yard rushing games at four.
Lacy is the first Packers running back since Ahman Green in 2004 to go to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii and the first Green Bay rookie running back since John Brockington in 1971.
