Lacy set franchise rookie records this season for rushing yards (1,178), rushing TDs (11) and rushing attempts (284) and tied the team’s rookie mark for 100-yard rushing games (four). He led all NFL rookies and ranked No. 8 among all players in rushing yards and was No. 3 in the league among all players with his 11 rushing TDs.
“I was extremely excited to hear that I am getting to go to the Pro Bowl after my rookie season,” said Lacy. “I feel like it gives me a great opportunity to thank my teammates, especially the offensive line, and coaches, for working with me and helping me accomplish what I did on the field this year.”
Peterson is not participating due to injury.
