Packers activate WR Allen Lazard from injured reserve
Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers is getting another weapon back in time for Week 11, as wide receiver Allen Lazard was activated off injured reserve Tuesday.
Lazard missed the the Packers’ last six games after undergoing core muscle surgery in early October. Over the first three games of the season, Lazard caught 13 passes for 254 yards and two touchdowns. In Week 3 against New Orleans, Lazard hauled in six receptions for a career-best 146 yards and a score.
The Packers have missed Lazard, who opened the season as the No. 2 receiver on the depth chart behind Davante Adams. Adams leads Green Bay with 61 catches. Next on the list is running back Aaron Jones (28 receptions), tight end Robert Tonyan (27), tailback Jamaal Williams (26) and then, finally, receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling with 22 catches on 45 targets.
Lazard and the Packers (7-2) will match up against Indianapolis (6-3) at 3:25 p.m. Sunday.
