Breer: Lacy’s pec injury also fueled draft fall

Draft notes: EJ Manuel over Geno Smith not that surprising

Clubs were nervous about Lacy’s medicals, specifically a torn pectoral and a toe injury—an observation that was supported by the Packers’ decision to backstop the Tide star by adding UCLA’s Johnathan Franklin in the fourth round.

We already knew about the toe injury; the pec problem contributed to Lacy's not having performed at the combine. But it goes beyond that, as Lacy has an extensive injury history, detailed here by the Journal-Sentinel.

This laundry list of maladies leads us to think John Elway was referencing more than just the toe when he said it was the medical reports that caused Denver to choose Montee Ball over Lacy.
