Lancaster (elbow) participated in Green Bay's June minicamp, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports. Lancaster sustained the elbow injury in Week 17 of last season, but he seems to have made a full recovery. The 24-year-old recorded 26 tackles (19 solo) over 12 games in a rotational role for the Packers in 2018.
Lancaster is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Lions due to an elbow injury, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports. Lancaster exited Sunday's divisional tilt during the third quarter. As long as Lancaster remains sidelined, expect Fadol Brown and James Looney to benefit from increased snaps.
Lancaster had seven tackles (six solo) in Sunday's loss to the Bears. Lancaster played a season-high 51 snaps Sunday, and the result was him setting a new career high in tackles. If fellow defensive lineman Kenny Clark (elbow) is unable to return before the season comes to a close, Lancaster figures to play regularly the next two weeks.
Lancaster was signed to the Packers' active roster Saturday. Lancaster was previously on Green Bay's practice squad after being signed as an undrafted free agent out of Northwestern. Running back Darius Jackson will be released to create Lancaster's roster spot.
