Lazard (core) was limited at Thursday's practice, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Lazard maintained his activity level for a second consecutive session and was joined by fellow limited participants Marquez Valdes-Scantling (Achilles) and Equanimeous St. Brown (knee). Meanwhile, Davante Adams (ankle) didn't practice at all. As a result, the Packers' receiving corps will be one to monitor closely to get a sense of the eventual pecking order for Sunday's contest against the Bears.
Lazard (core) was limited in practice Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
In his first game action since Week 3 this past Sunday at Indianapolis, Lazard played 60 percent of the offensive snaps on his way to two receptions (on four targets) for 18 yards. The workload and output were a far cry from the first three contests of the season, when he played 87 percent of the offensive snaps and compiled a 13-254-2 line on 17 targets. Clearly, Lazard isn't 100 percent, but he still has two more opportunities to elevate to full activity by the end of the week.
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.

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.
Lazard (core) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Although the Packers activated Lazard from injured reserve Tuesday, he still seems to be easing back to full speed as he approaches his first game action since Week 3. If his conditioning hasn't returned by Sunday's game at Indianapolis, Lazard could take a back seat in the passing game to both Davante Adams (ankle) and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. In any case, Lazard's situation will continue to be monitored closely as the week proceeds.
The Packers activated Lazard (core) from injured reserve Tuesday.
The Packers opened Lazard's 21-day practice window Oct. 28, so they had until Wednesday to bring him back to the active roster. After nearly three weeks of practice to prove he's recovered from Oct. 1 core-muscle surgery, he's been cleared to return and should vie with the surging Marquez Valdes-Scantling right away for No. 2 WR looks behind Davante Adams. Prior to the aforementioned procedure, Lazard totaled 13 catches (on 17 targets) for 254 yards and two touchdowns through three games.
Coach Matt LaFleur said the Packers will wait until Wednesday's deadline to decide whether to activated Lazard (abdomen) from IR but added that "it's probably promising," Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Lazard officially resumed practicing Oct. 28, so Green Bay's 21-day window for evaluation will come to a close Wednesday. If the team doesn't activate Lazard by then he'll revert to season-ending IR, but it sounds as though LaFleur anticipates getting the 24-year-old wideout back. Once back to full health Lazard stands to reclaim a starting role in Green Bay's receiving corps, but in the short term he may be eased back into action.
Lazard (abdomen) was not activated off injured reserve Saturday and thus will not be able to play Week 10, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Lazard wasn't seen at practice Friday, which seemed to indicate the Packers wouldn't be activating the talented wideout ahead of the team's Week 10 tilt. Expect another dose of Marquez Valdes-Scantling operating as the No. 2 option with Equanimeous St. Brown (knee), Malik Taylor and Darrius Shepherd providing additional depth at the position. It's worth noting the team seems to feel confident Lazard will be ready for Week 11, which would mark his first start since late September.
Coach Matt LaFleur referred to Lazard (abdomen) as a game-time decision, though the Packers would need to remove the wideout from injured reserve Saturday in order to have him available for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
The Packers could move Lazard to the active roster and then place him on the gameday inactive list, but it wouldn't be ideal from a strategic standpoint. In all likelihood, they'll make a decision on his Week 10 status by Saturday, at which point Lazard will either stay on IR or be activated. If he does end up playing, it could knock Marquez Valdes-Scantling down to the No. 3 WR role, though not necessarily right out of the gate. It sounds like Lazard should be back for Week 11 even if he doesn't get clearance to face Jacksonville this weekend.
Lazard (abdomen) isn't practicing Friday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
This is the first practice Lazard has missed since Oct. 28, which was the start of his three-week window to be activated from injured reserve. The Friday absence suggests he may not be back until Week 11, though coach Matt LaFleur said Monday that Lazard should have a shot to return for Sunday's game against Jacksonville. Now that it isn't looking so good, Marquez Valdes-Scantling likely will handle the No. 2 WR role for at least one more game.
Coach Matt LaFleur said Monday that it's possible Lazard (abdomen) will play against the Jaguars on Sunday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
The Packers could wait until Week 11 to officially bring Lazard back from IR, due to the length of his 21-day practice window, but LaFleur said he intends to activate the wideout "as soon as [he's] ready to go." The 23-year-old hasn't played since Week 3 while recovering from core-muscle surgery. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown (knee) will continue to serve as the top options being Devante Adams if Lazard has to miss any more time.
The Packers don't plan to activate Lazard (core-muscle surgery) ahead of Thursday's game against the 49ers, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Though Lazard resumed practicing a little over a week ago and made the trip to San Francisco, the Packers apparently want the wideout to put in some more on-field work before signing off on his return to game action. With Lazard sidelined for a fifth straight game, the Packers will turn to Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown as their primary options at receiver beyond top target Davante Adams.
Lazard (core) joined the Packers for their flight to San Francisco ahead of Thursday's game against the 49ers, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Lazard underwent core-muscle surgery Oct. 1, and the Packers placed him on injured reserve not long after. The team opened his 21-day window to return to the active roster last Wednesday, and after putting in a week's worth of reps, he may be ready to give the Green Bay passing game a boost. Of course, the Packers will need to activate Lazard by 4 p.m. ET on Thursday for him to rejoin his teammates. Prior to his surgery, Lazard piled up 13 catches (on 17 targets) for 254 yards and two touchdowns through the first three contests of the campaign.
Coach Matt LaFleur said Lazard (core) is drawing closer to a return to action, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. "He wants to be out there in the worst way, and he wishes he was out there yesterday," LaFleur noted. "But we're going to take our time and be smart with him."
Lazard has completed one week of his 21-day window for the Packers to evaluate and eventually clear him for a return to the active roster. He's also only a little more than a month removed from core muscle surgery Oct. 1, so he may be hard-pressed to sway the training staff ahead of Thursday's contest at San Francisco and with Green Bay's next game not coming until Sunday, Nov. 15 against the Jaguars. Until he rejoins the Packers receiving corps, Davante Adams will lead a group that also includes Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown (knee), Malik Taylor and Darrius Shepherd.
Lazard (core) was not activated ahead of Sunday's game and thus will not be eligible to play this week against the Vikings, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
There was some hope Lazard could make a return to the field after missing the past three games following core muscle surgery, but the ever-patient Packers will opt to wait another week before bringing back their wide receiver. Look for Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Malik Taylor, Darrius Shepherd and Equanimeous St. Brown to fill in the gaps behind No. 1 wideout and frequent target Davante Adams.
Lazard (core) practiced again Friday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
The Packers designated Lazard to return from injured reserve earlier this week, and they'll now need to place him on the active roster by Saturday afternoon in order to have him eligible for Sunday's game against the Vikings. A third consecutive day of practice participation suggests Lazard has a shot to play, perhaps even reclaiming his starting spot across from Davante Adams. Fellow wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling hasn't done much in Lazard's absence, averaging 2.3 catches for 25.7 yards on 5.7 targets over the past three games. Lazard averaged 4.3 catches for 84.7 yards and 0.67 TDs on 5.7 targets in Weeks 1-3.
Lazard (core) participated in Thursday's padded practice, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
One day removed from the Packers opening his 21-day window to be activated from IR, Lazard took part in individual drills. He underwent core muscle surgery on Oct. 1, after which he was given a recovery timetable of "a month or a little bit more," per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Considering the Packers next play Sunday, Nov. 1 against the Vikings, Lazard seemingly has a chance to return this weekend. Still, Green Bay has been cautious with other key skill-position players (Davante Adams and Aaron Jones) this season, so Lazard may have a better chance to suit up Week 9 at San Francisco.
