Lazard was targeted four times and caught two passes for 18 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts. Lazard was not expected to handle a full workload Sunday, and that indeed was the case, as he was on the field for a season-low 60 percent of the plays run by the Packers offense. He played 88 percent of the available snaps over the three games he appeared in before going down with a core muscle injury, so his playing time figures to pick up moving forward. Whether his production follows remains to be seen, but there's ample reason for optimism, as Lazard's averages of 18.1 YPC and 13.0 YPT -- albeit on only 21 total targets -- are among the best in the league.
Lazard (core) is active for Sunday's game at Indianapolis. Making his long-awaited return to action, Lazard will log his first snaps since undergoing core-muscle surgery Oct. 1. His workload will be of interest, especially after Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that Lazard will be on a "pitch count." Prior to his six-game absence, Lazard played at least 84 percent of the offensive snaps Weeks 1 through 3 en route to 13 catches (on 17 targets) for 254 yards and two touchdowns.
Lazard (abdomen), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Final word on his Week 11 status will arrive when Green Bay's inactives are reported prior to the game's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff. Per Rapoport, Lazard, who has missed Green Bay's past six games while recovering from core-muscle surgery, will likely be on a "pitch count," as the Packers look to ease the wideout back into the mix. In the three games he played prior to being sidelined, Lazard caught 13 passes (on 17 targets) for 254 yards and two touchdowns.
Lazard (abdomen) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Working his way back from core muscle surgery, Lazard was a limited participant in every practice this week. He hasn't played since Week 3, so he could be eased back in with a limited role once he's ready to play. A final decision may not come until Sunday when the Packers release their inactive list approximately 90 minutes before the 4:25 ET kickoff.
Lazard (core) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports. Lazard maintained his activity level for a second straight session as he works his way back from Oct. 1 core-muscle surgery. Clearly, there's some question about whether he'll be able to make his first appearance since Week 3 on Sunday at Indianapolis, but his status may be cleared up on Friday's injury report. With Davante Adams (ankle) downgrading from limited Wednesday to no reps at all Thursday, the Packers' receiving corps is in some flux at the moment.
