The Packers activated receiver Allen Lazard from injured reserve, the team announced Tuesday.

The team had to make a decision on Lazard about whether to activate him or put him on season-ending IR.

The Packers did not have to make a corresponding move with AJ Dillon and Krys Barnes on the COVID-19 reserve list.

Lazard and Davante Adams have not played together since the third quarter in Week 2.

In Week 3, Lazard earned a game ball after making six catches for a career-high 146 yards and a touchdown in the victory over the Saints. He played through a core muscle injury in that game.

Lazard has 13 catches for 254 yards and two touchdowns this season.

  1. It’s kind of disturbing to realize that the Packers have not had their top 2 WRs and their top RB on the field at the same time since the second week of the season, and yet they still have the third-highest scoring offense in the league.

    That’s going to be put to the test against the Colts and Bears the next two games, but they’re getting back to full strength at the right time.

  2. Getting Lazard back is huge. Lazard has missed most of the season so far and not having him has affected the potency of the offense. With Davante as the #1 WR, Lazard at #2, and MVS at #3, Aaron Rodgers has a nice arseneal of WR’s to work with.

  3. It’s not often a very good and historically consistent team can silently build for their QB future behind the scenes by relying on a stalwart group of young players at the WR position, instead of knee-jerking an unnecessary first round pick at that position. Getting Alien Lizard back will take it to another division-leading level, while Love continues to learn from the best……just like Rodgers did.

  4. No guarantees that Lazard will play immediately, he’s still experiencing soreness from his abdominal surgery and this move had to be made to prevent him from being lost for the season.
    But, at least we know that we’ll have him in the near future and especially down that crucial home stretch.
    It will be great to have him back in the fold.

  5. *Arsenal⤴

    The game vs. the Colts this week will tell us a lot about what the Packers are. The Colts have a great defense and the Packers have struggled at times against great defenses. The Packers were down some players vs. The Bucs so I think you can expect a different outcome this time against another top D in the Colts.

    The Packers D has also been missing some key pieces including their top 2 CB’s in Jaire and King. Hopefully both can go this week.

  6. Can we start calling Allen Lazard “Swifty?” …….. Nicknamed after famous Hollywood agent and dealmaker Swifty Lazar. Seems to fit.

  7. When Lazard is at full strength and back up to speed the Packer offense will be much more difficult to defend.

    And they are going to need to outscore teams in January, so welcome back.
