Eddie Lacy ready to go for Tide if practice started today

Earlier this week, a pair of SEC coaches said their running backs would be good to go after season-ending injuries in 2011.

On Wednesday, Alabama coach Nick Saban said as much for back Eddie Lacy, who missed all of spring practices because of surgery. In fact, Lacy would be “cleared to practice if practice began today,” according to the head coach.

“Eddie Lacy has done extremely well over the summer,” Saban told reporters. “We continue to work hard to try to get the conditioning level of these players back to where they’ll be able to be prepared to have a full role on the team.”

Lacy was recently named to this year’s Doak Walker Award watch list, given to the nation’s best running back. He had 95 carries for 674 yards and seven touchdowns last season, and is presumed to be the back to take a majority of snaps in Alabama’s backfield now that Trent Richardson is gone.

    Lacy is a beast. I’d rather have him at 80% than any other back in the league.
