Packers WR Allen Lazard Doubtful for Sunday vs. Vikings

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday’s matchup with the Minnesota Vikings, per Matt Schneidman of The Athletic.

It looks like quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be without his new top target for the season’s opening game. That leaves Sammy Watkins as WR1 heading into the matchup with a litany of inexperience behind him on the depth chart. Lazard felt like the target that Rodgers trusted the most, so it will be interesting to see who he targets in what should be a close game.

In 2021, Lazard hauled in 40 receptions on 60 targets for 513 yards and eight touchdowns. Keep an eye out for an official declaration of Lazard’s absence for Sunday before kickoff.
