Packers Place WR Allen Lazard & LB Christian Kirksey On Injured Reserve


The Green Bay Packers placed LB Christian Kirksey and WR Allen Lazard on injured reserve Saturday, according to Field Yates.

Lazard is expected to be out at least a month following core muscle surgery.

It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks. 

Lazard, 24, wound up signing on with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of Iowa State back in 2018. He agreed to a three-year, $1.71 million contract with the Jaguars, but was waived coming out of the preseason.

The Jaguars later re-signed Lazard to their practice squad after he cleared waivers. From there, he joined the Packers towards the end of the 2018 season and was on and off of their roster last year before signing a one-year deal as exclusive rights free agent this offseason. 

So far this season, Lazard has appeared in three games and recorded 13 receptions for 254 yards (19.5 YPC) and two touchdowns, to go along with two rushing attempts for 17 yards (8.5 YPC).
