Packers receiver Allen Lazard should be good to go tonight against the Bears.

Although the official injury report lists Lazard as questionable with an ankle injury, he is expected to play, according to ESPN.

Lazard was second on the team with 513 receiving yards last season, and with the departure of Davante Adams, Lazard was expected to move into the No. 1 receiver role this year. But he missed the Week One loss to the Vikings with the ankle injury.

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ passing game struggled last week, and running back AJ Dillon was the Packers’ leading receiver. Tonight they’ll expect a better passing performance, with Lazard as Rodgers’ top target.

  1. He couldn’t establish himself as the no.2 receiver when Davante was here so don’t expect him to have a breakout year.

  2. Maybe if Rodgers would throw the ball around to his OPEN recievers instead of being locked in to one reciever the passing game could take off.Rodgers is incredibly stubborn and bullheaded and gives up on young recievers much to fast.he had wide open targets in Minn and didnt even give them a look,is that the sign of a great quarterback,ignoring open recievers in favor of covered ones.

  3. Man, there’s a whole lot of wishful thinking on this thread.
    You can almost smell the desperation. 🤔

    It’s funny how people think Lazard is actually a good receiver.
    Besides being among the best blocking WR in the game, Lazard produces per target in line with other mid-level #1s …. so we’ll see.

    But give it a few months, don’t rush to judge the rust.
