Packers | More on Eddie Lacy

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (toe) didn't have toe fusion surgery before his senior year at Alabama. It was a surgery to correct turf toe. Unlike the typical toe fusion surgery - which hardens the toe completely, limiting mobility - only the bone on the tip of Lacy's big toe was fused. "The joint underneath the toenail was fused to allow the ligament to work better basically," Alabama's team doctor E. Lyle Cain Jr. said. "It's something you do to give you a better push-off. His big toe moves just like a normal big toe in terms of motion... If you fused it completely, it'd give you a stiff big toe and you can't push off and that's a big problem. In Eddie's case, he does not have that. His fusion does not affect his big-toe motion."
