Eddie Lacy bowls over pins for charity, defenders for Packers

POSTED BY: EDDIE LACY in NEWS

Green Bay running back Eddie Lacy was having what Packers coach Mike McCarthy called his "best game this year" when he suffered an ankle injury on Sunday night.

Lacy had run for 81 yards on 11 carries and seemed on his way to his second straight 100-yard game when New York Giants linebacker Keenan Robinson landed on his left ankle on his second carry of the second half and sent the former Alabama standout limping to the bench. Lacy didn't return to the game.

The good news for the Packers is McCarthy said, "I would say it's not serious" about Lacy's injury. The good news for Freedom House Family Life Advancement Center is the ankle injury didn't keep Lacy from going bowling.

Lacy hosted Lacy on the Lanes on Monday night, a bowling fundraiser for Green Bay-based Freedom House. Among the Packers' players participating in the event was free safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, another former Alabama star.

Freedom House states that its purpose "is to serve Brown County area families who find themselves in dire need of emergency housing. Our program involves a step-by-step action plan individualized for each family aimed at obtaining permanent housing and employment, and restoring the family unit. We, in compassion, provide for the short-term needs of homeless families and children, and in love, empower these families with long-term solutions to end their cycle of homelessness. The result is a positive and beneficial environment that encourages families to live more productive, healthy and fulfilling lives."

Lacy and his family were displaced from their home in Gretna, La., by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

"My family was deeply affected by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans," Lacy said. "I understand that families can fall on hard times for many different reasons, and it's important that I do my part to support those families in the Green Bay community."

Lacy has rushed for 295 yards on 54 carries this season, an average of 5.5 yards per carry. He can for 103 yards in the Packers' 34-27 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sept. 25.

"It is frustrating," Lacy said after Sunday's game. "But it happens. Injuries are a part of the game. It's still early, but it's definitely frustrating, especially when you're doing good, and you want to keep going but you can't."

The Packer host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon.

"I'm a pretty tough person," Lacy said. "I should be all right."
