Packers not sure Allen Lazard will play this week

The Packers have a lot of new faces in their receiving corps this year and one of the familiar faces from recent seasons may be missing for the opener.

Allen Lazard did not practice with the team last Wednesday and he remained out when the team returned to work on Monday. The injury keeping Lazard off the field is undisclosed and head coach Matt LaFleur said only that the team will monitor his condition as the week goes on.

“Allen’s doing better but we’ll see as the week progresses, where he’s at,” LaFleur said, via WLUK.

LaFleur sounded more optimistic about second-round pick Christian Watson, who has missed time this summer after having knee surgery, but stopped short of ruling him in for the matchup with the Vikings. Randall Cobb, Sammy Watkins, Romeo Doubs, Amari Rodgers, and Samori Toure are the other wideouts on the 53-man roster.

  1. Lazard will be a go on Sunday unless he has a major setback in the next few days.
    Reporters couldn’t film it, but said he was running fine during his rehab stint today with no really noticeable injury.

  2. I’d probably rest a few more starters also once we’re ahead by a few touchdowns.

  3. The Packer WRs are a laughing stock with it without lazzard. He is not really good and is supposed to be their 1. 🤡

    And yet they finished a full 6 games ahead of the Vikings last season and went 7-0 whenever their old good #1 didn’t play. You worry too much.

  5. The Packers have lots of weapons for Rodgers. And none of them are named Davante Adams. Vikings defense won’t know who to focus on or double.
    I see Cobb having a breakout game.

    I think you are 10 years too late with that prediction

    Thanks, but I attribute it to Coach LaFleur and Gutekunst. Watch what they do with Green Bay’s wide receivers this season!
