Packers place Allen Lazard on COVID-19 reserve list

The Packers placed another wide receiver on the COVID-19 reserve list on Tuesday.

Allen Lazard is the new addition to the list. He was added a day after the team placed Davante Adams on the list. Defensive coordinator Joe Barry is also away from the team due to COVID protocols.

If Lazard is vaccinated and asymptomatic, he can come off the list with two negative tests taken 24 hours apart. With a game against the Cardinals on Thursday, chances are that the Packers are going to be without both wideouts.

Lazard has 15 catches for 184 yards and two touchdowns this season. He’s second behind Adams among wide receivers in catches and yardage.

With Malik Taylor also on the COVID list, Randall Cobb, Amari Rodgers, and Equanimeous St. Brown are the wideouts on the 53-man roster. Marquez Valdes-Scantling is on injured reserve and head coach Matt LaFleur said he could return to this week. The Lazard news may make that development more likely in Green Bay.

  1. Can we just quit testing already. We have 80K fans in attendance not being tested, whats the actual point of testing the players? And I am salty about this development.

  2. NFL will never release this data. I wonder if large % of vaccinated players took the one-shot JnJ which is the least effective among the spike vaccines.

  3. If the NFL and PFT (too if fans of Covid culture and left wing causes) aren’t releasing data you can rest assured that the vast majority of players and coaches missing games due to Covid are those vaccinated. If they were unvaccinated both NFL and PFT would want to align. Was aging with Biden administration that it’s the unvaccinated causing the problem. The facts are both vaccinated and unvaccinated get Covid spread Covid get hospitalized with Covid and die from it. This no reason for divisive mandates from NFL or anyone else

  4. hahahaha! Aaron Rodgers “We will still find a way to win.” Winks at the refs…..

  5. Well, the virus is running through the Bears. The Packers played the Bears a week and a half ago. Now it’s running through the Packers.

  6. I’m sorry, but add this to an ongoing list of reasons I can’t stand Thursday football.

    You mean the virus that is structured like the common cold and flu viruses? The virus that you have a 99% survival rate? The virus that almost all NFL players don’t even get a symptom from? I can keep going, but you get my point…..I hope!

  8. You know how the NFL has Murray’s crappy end over end horrific Hail Mary on loop?…….Aaron Rodgers CANNOT beat him under any circumstances. Welcome to the WWE.

    All I know is, my dear dear cousin, who I loved like a sister, was dead in the ground less than 2 weeks after she contracted it. And she died all alone. It breaks my heart when I think of how scared she must have been, not being able to breathe, being told she was being put on a ventilator and wondering if she would ever come off of it.

  10. Without both of their top WRs this is going to make it extremely difficult for GB to win this game on the road. I’d guess the odds of them winning are one in ten, maybe two out of 10. A massive obstacle will be keeping up with AZ offensively as the Cardinals just have so many freaking weapons that it will make it next to impossible for the Packers below avg to avg defense to pull this one out. The only positive for the GB Packers is the game being played on Thursday where a lot of fluke things seem to happen.
