Eddie Lacy has said that he is keen to make the most of his "opportunities" at the Pro Bowl.

The Green Bay Packers running back was a late addition to the roster for the game, replacing the Minnesota Vikings' Adrian Peterson, who underwent groin surgery earlier this week.

The rookie told reporters: "I just want to make the most of whatever opportunities I'll get. I don't know when I'll play.

"It's not a big deal to me, but just to be able to go out there and play with this group of guys, it's going to mean a lot to me and I'll just try to do my best.

"It's real beautiful out here. The weather is perfect. The scenery is just amazing, man. We're just trying to take in as much as we can."

Lacy will be one of three running backs to play for Team Sanders alongside Jamaal Charles of the Kansas City Chiefs and the Washington Redskins' Alfred Morris.
