Alabama running back Eddie Lacy is one of 52 players that's been named to the Doak Walker Award watch list. Lacy, who was nursing an injury this spring, is healthy and ready to be the Tide's top back this season.

Alabama’s Eddie Lacy has been named to the Doak Walker Award watch list, which honors the nation’s top running back.

He’s one of 52 players on the watch list. The winner will be announced at the College Football Awards on Dec. 6 on ESPN.

Lacy, who sat out this spring with turf toe, rushed for 674 yards and seven touchdowns behind starter Trent Richardson last year.

If Alabama history repeats itself, Lacy, a junior, should be in for a breakout year as Mark Ingram and Richardson both had stellar junior seasons.

Lacy has also been put up for the Maxwell Award.
