Lancaster went undrafted last year, but the Packers may have unearthed a gem, as Lancaster led all inside defenders over the last six weeks of the season with 17 stops against the run, according to Pro Football Focus. The extent of his elbow injury is uncertain, so it remains to be seen just when he will be back at 100 percent.
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.
