Matt LaFleur: We’ll see how Allen Lazard’s shoulder feels throughout the week

Packers receiver Allen Lazard had to exit Sunday’s game with a shoulder injury.

At this point, it’s unclear whether he’ll be available for Green Bay’s Week Eight matchup against the Bills.

“He hurt his shoulder,” head coach Matt LaFleur said in his Monday press conference. “I’ll kind of leave it at that, see how it feels throughout the course of the week.”

Lazard had six catches for 55 yards before he had to leave the game. He currently leads Green Bay’s struggling offense with 340 receiving yards and four touchdowns on 26 catches.

Multiple reporters spotted Lazard in a sling in the Packers’ locker room after the game.

The Packers are already down one of their key receivers, with Randall Cobb on injured reserve. Sammy Watkins did return off injured reserve for Sunday’s game, catching a pair of passes for 36 yards.

  1. Please tell me an NFL player that doesn’t currently have a hurt shoulder in week 7/8.

  2. It doesn’t matter. The only chance the Packers have of winning is if they end the game after the first quarter. They obviously can not make any adjustments during the game.

  3. More importantly, LaFleur should be monitoring Arrogant Aaron’s ego this week. It appears to have taken quite the bruising Sunday…

  4. Why? Why? does everyone hate me (including some Packer fans). I am the most loved player in the NFL and very humble, just like our fans. Packer fans are always humble in victory and gracious to fans of the other NFL teams in our defeats When we lose, we just quietly crawl back into the woodwork.

    Lazard is a #3 receiver on most teams!

    Amazing. How does he get paid?

  6. What you have here is an expansion team set of WR’s with a good TE an underachieving OL and an over paid aging with diminishing skills QB more afraid then ever of being hit. Our clueless GM should have traded him for a boat load of draft picks last year so the rebuilding process would have had an excellent kick start. Could we even get 2 # 2 draft picks for him now ?
    This is a recipe for a 9-8 8-9 season the best days are behind us .

  7. The bigger issue with the Packers performance is an inconsistent O Line.
    They need to give Rodgers a couple more seconds in the pocket so the receivers can get into their routes. Credit to to opponents defenses,… but the Pack needs to do a better job upfront. Hopefully the changes made bring a better result as they get time to gel. Bakhtiari is probably done. It’s not the only problem but one that I think is what affects Rodgers ability to make big plays we’re use to seeing.

    Wish our Vikings could win something meaningful with their stable of receivers


    Awwwww it’s so cute the packer trolls can keep going even when their team is headed for last place in the NFCN. You hang in there buddy.

  9. Our Vikings can never drag it over the finish line so we take great joy in those rare times when the Packers might be having a down season.
