(WNFL) - Green Bay Packers' running back Eddie Lacy is not letting a concussion, asthma, and an ankle injury get in the way of a standout rookie season.  Despite missing almost two full games, Lacy is on pace to rush for 11-hundred-29 yards and nine touchdowns in the regular season.  He's at 887 yards and seven scores going into Sunday's Packer game at Dallas.  Lacy broke Green Bay's previous rookie record of six rushing touchdowns set by Samkon Gado in 2005.  And Lacy has 227 carries, breaking John Brockington's rookie team mark of 216 back in 1971.  What's more, Lacy has a knack for breaking tackles.  Pro Football Focus said he broke five tackles in last Sunday's home win over Atlanta -- and 44 of his 65 rushing yards came after his first contact with a defender.  Lacy is fourth in the N-F-L with 48 missed tackles forced by his defenders, and he's 10th in the league with almost two-and-a-half yards after his first hit.
