Lazard will compete for snaps with fellow wide receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Amari Rodgers and Devin Funchess, Wes Hodkiewicz of packers.com reports.
Any contribution from Funchess would be a welcome surprise, but even the addition of just Rodgers -- a rookie third-round pick -- gives the Packers a little more depth than they had last year. Despite averaging fewer than five targets per week apiece, Lazard and Valdes-Scantling both played more than 70 percent of offensive snaps in their active games last season, as the Packers had little else behind target-hog Davante Adams. Lazard did have 254 yards and two TDs over the first three weeks of last season before his core muscle injury and subsequent surgery, so he should be right in the mix for the No. 2 job this summer.
Lazard recorded three receptions on six targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 31-26 loss in the NFC Championship Game against Tampa Bay.
Lazard made several clutch grabs, including a 23-yard reception late in the first quarter to convert on third down to keep a drive alive that ultimately ended with a touchdown. He topped 15 yards with his other two receptions on the day, one of which directly led to another score for the Packers. Lazard was limited to 11 games during the regular season by a core-muscle injury but improved his performance from a per-game perspective in his third season as a professional. Heading into the 2021 season, Lazard in an exclusive rights free agent, meaning the team simply can tender a contract to retain him.
Lazard (wrist/back) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The Packers have consistently limited Lazard's practice participation since he returned from core muscle surgery in November, but he hasn't actually missed any games. He played a significant role in the win over Los Angeles last week, catching four of eight targets for 96 yards and a touchdown while playing 72 percent of the snaps on offense.
Lazard (wrist/back) was limited at Thursday's practice, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
This is par for the course for Lazard ever since he was cleared to return to action Week 11 following core muscle surgery back on Oct. 1. He put together his best outing since the procedure this past Saturday against the Rams -- four catches (on eight targets) for 96 yards and one touchdown -- so he has some momentum heading into the NFC Championship Game. Friday's injury report likely will pave the way for Lazard to face the Buccaneers on Sunday.
The Packers listed Lazard as a limited participant on Wednesday's practice report with wrist and back injuries.
Lazard was one of 10 Green Bay players classified as limited Wednesday, but the team hasn't indicated that the wideout is in any danger of missing Sunday's NFC Championship Game against Tampa Bay. Last week, Lazard was limited in practice as well, but he didn't carry a designation into the Packers' divisional-round win over the Rams.
Lazard recorded four receptions on eight targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' divisional-round win over the Rams on Saturday.
Lazard led the Packers in yards, thanks to a 58-yard touchdown reception midway through the fourth quarter to clinch a win. It was a moment of redemption for Lazard, as he dropped what appeared to be another long touchdown earlier in the game. After commanding no more than six targets in any of the final seven regular-season contests, Lazard appears to have reasserted himself as the team's second wide receiver.
Lazard (core/wrist) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday's NFC divisional-round game against the Rams.
Lazard continues to have his practice reps capped since undergoing core-muscle surgery Week 11, but his status for Saturday's game never appeared to be in true jeopardy. The Packers have eased him back into action since, but Lazard could be required to play a key offensive role Saturday given that Jalen Ramsey will likely shadow Davante Adams.
Lazard (core/wrist) was limited at practice Wednesday.
Lazard is following his usual practice routine since his return from core-muscle surgery Week 11. After the Packers had a bye for the first round of the playoffs, Lazard looks to be in a good spot physically, and he should enter the weekend minus a designation for Saturday's divisional-round game versus the Rams.
Lazard (core/wrist) was listed as limited on Tuesday's practice report.
With a week to rest up since the end of the regular season, Lazard continues to be hindered by a pair of injuries. He's still not quite 100 percent recovered from Oct. 1 core muscle surgery, while his wrist issue cropped up over the final two weeks of the campaign. The Packers have yet to unleash him since he returned Week 11 from a stint in IR, resulting in 20 catches (on 29 targets) for 197 yards and one touchdown over the last seven contests.
Lazard was targeted four times and caught two passes for 17 yards in Sunday's victory over the Bears.
Lazard got off to a hot start in 2020, tallying 254 receiving yards and two scores over his first three games of the season. However, a core injury suffered Week 3 cost him the next six games, and he was not the same afterward, putting up just 197 yards and one touchdown over the last seven weeks. While Lazard is not producing much, he's spending plenty of time on the field, as he finished second among Packers skill players in offensive snaps in both Weeks 16 and 17.
Lazard (core/wrist) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Bears, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.
Limited practice reps have been the norm since Lazard returned from injured reserve earlier this season, but he hasn't missed a game since Week 11. Though he seems to be in a decent spot health-wise, Lazard has yet to re-establish the form he displayed Weeks 1 through 3, when he accrued 13 receptions for 254 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
Lazard (core/wrist) was limited at Thursday's practice.
Since he returned to the lineup Week 11 following a six-game absence due to core muscle surgery, Lazard has had his practice reps capped. In six contests in the interim, he's only reached 50 receiving yards twice and scored one touchdown on 25 targets. Lazard likely will be available again Sunday at Chicago, but he has yet to show his early season strides from before the procedure.
Lazard (core/wrist) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday.
For a second straight week, Lazard's practice reps are capped due to his core and wrist injuries. That said, he handled 62 percent of the offensive snaps this past Sunday against the Titans, but his output (two catches for 14 yards on two targets) was lacking. Lazard will aim to brush aside his injuries in order to serve as the Packers' No. 2 wide receiver again this weekend in Chicago.
Lazard caught both his targets for 14 yards in Sunday's victory over the Titans.
Lazard was on the field for just 62 percent of the plays the Packers' offense ran Sunday, but he essentially handled a full workload, as the 41 snaps he saw were just six fewer than any other skill player on the roster. While he spent plenty of time on the field, he was not very involved as a receiver, and his 14 yards were his fewest in a game this season. Lazard will close out the regular season against the Bears, a team that has allowed opposing wideouts to find the end zone 11 times over its last seven games.
Lazard (core/wrist) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Tennessee, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
A limited practice participant throughout the week, Lazard never appeared in serious danger of missing Sunday's game. He's averaged just 33.2 yards in five games since returning from injured reserve, but he did catch five of six targets for 56 yards last week, with a 77-percent snap share being his largest since Week 3. Lazard also gets a nice matchup this week, facing a Tennessee defense that's given up the fourth-most fantasy points to wide receivers.
Lazard (core/wrist) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The Packers have capped Lazard's reps in both of their first two practices of Week 16, but head coach Matt LaFleur hasn't expressed any concern about the receiver's chances of playing Sunday against the Titans. Assuming Lazard is cleared to suit up this weekend, he'll be looking to build on a strong showing in the Packers' win over the Panthers in Week 15. He handled his biggest snap share (77 percent) since Week 3 in that contest, finishing the day with five receptions for 56 yards on six targets.
Lazard (core/wrist) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.
For the first time since he was activated from injured reserve Week 11, Lazard logged at least 75 percent of the offensive snaps -- 77, to be precise -- in Green Bay's Week 15 win over the Panthers. In the first four games after he was cleared to play following his Oct. 1 core-muscle surgery, Lazard ranged between 46 to 69 percent offensive snap shares. After picking up more work against the Panthers, Lazard is now dealing with a wrist issue along with the core injury that has been attached to his name on the Packers' recent practice reports. He has two more sessions to prove his health this week before the Packers take on the Titans on Sunday.
Lazard recorded five receptions on six targets for 56 yards in Week 15 against the Panthers.
Lazard matched his best target total since returning from a core injury in Week 11. His performance was made impressive by the fact that he finished second on the team in targets while also leading the team in receiving yards. Even after recording receptions of 22, 14 and 12 yards, Lazard's performance was blemished by a drop at the end of the first half that cost the Packers the opportunity to add to their lead. Nevertheless, it was a positive performance for Lazard, and he could be in line for more volume in Week 16 against the Titans.
Lazard (core) doesn't have a designation for Saturday's contest against the Panthers, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
Despite being limited in practice all week, Lazard is ready to roll for a fifth straight game since his lengthy stint on injured reserve due to Oct. 1 core muscle surgery. The Packers have yet to fully unleash Lazard since the procedure, and if his activity level on the field this week is any indication, he may be slated for his usual handful of targets Saturday.
Lazard (core) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
The Packers have restricted Lazard's workload both in games and during practices since he returned from injured reserve Week 11. There's not yet any reason to worry about Lazard's status for Saturday's home game against the Panthers, but as long as he's played below 70 percent of offensive snaps, he'll be difficult to bank on for meaningful fantasy production.
