Packers WR Allen Lazard Out At Least A Month Following Core Muscle Surgery



Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Packers WR Allen Lazard is out at least a month following core muscle surgery.

You can expect the Packers to place him on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.

According to Adam Schefter, Packers WR Allen Lazard underwent core-muscle surgery this week and is out indefinitely. 

He could be a candidate to go on Green Bay’s injured reserve. 

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).
