Lacy to play in Pro Bowl
Story By Joe Dufek

GREEN BAY - The 2013 season is not completely over for Packers running back Eddie Lacy.

Lacy will now be in the Pro Bowl - which is later this month.

Lacy replaces Vikings running back Adrian Peterson who is out with an injury.

Lacy is the first Packers running back to play in the Pro Bowl since Ahman Green back in 2005.

The last Packers rookie running back to make the Pro Bowl - John Brockington in 1971.


The Pro Bowl is Sunday Jan 26th. The game can be seen live on Newswatch 12.

One other note. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is this year's Bart Starr award winner. Athletes in Action recognizes an NFL player for outstanding character and leadership at home, on the field and in the community. He will be honored the weekend of the Super Bowl in New York.
