07:19 AM ET 11.26 | One opponent was able do something to Eddie Lacy, stop him, that the Vikings couldn't -- his asthma. Lacy, a battering ram for the Green Bay Packers Sunday at Lambeau Field in a 26-26 tie, left the game late in overtime when his respiratory condition made worse by 19-degree weather caught up to him. "It's worse in the winter time," Lacy said. "I've had it since I was little. Sometimes it's worse than others." It was by far the coldest game ever for Lacy, who played in high school at Geismar, La., and in college at Alabama. "And it's going to get worse, I think," he said, laughingly looking ahead to two December games in Green Bay and another in Chicago. Until then, Lacy had one of his best games of an outstanding rookie season. After a slow start, he pounded the Vikings on a consistent basis.

How does one "see" asthma? Maybe Lacy feels or senses or believes his asthma is getting worse, but not "see."

He needs to see Doctor Dracula. You know, Vlad the Inhaler....

Still, it must not be a serious case. He seems to be doing pretty well despite it.

I thought cold weather is supposed to be good for opening up airways? Maybe 19 degrees is too cold.

I agree. My brother has asthma and it's the heat that makes it hard for him t breathe.. Perhaps Mr Ed is an alien?

That is not good. Not with ice fishing season about to open.

With Starks, they've got a pretty good one-two punch.

Wheezy?

You'd think the Packers team doctors would have realized this before the team drafted him.

I can't think of a worse home stadium for a guy that can't breathe in the cold.

the severe cold weather actually can cause bronchial spasms. ER used to fill up with asthmatics first cold snap every year @ Texas Children's when I worked there

OOh. That's a good one.

I live here near Milwaukee and get the paper that has this article. Boy did the interns stretch this one. More so than most when they make up the titles. The actual story has Lacy saying he isn't worried about the asthma. But go right ahead interns and sensationalize the living heck out of that article. It's what you do.
