Report: Lazard out 'indefinitely' | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Packers WR Allen Lazard had core-muscle surgery this week and is "out indefinitely." He seems likely to land on IR. We'll keep an eye out for more details on a return timeline. Lazard will likely prove droppable in many redraft leagues, but let's see if more info comes out over the next couple of days. Marquez Valdes-Scantling gains opportunity upside with Lazard out.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (core) is active for today’s game against the Colts. He’s expected to be on a snap count and isn’t a viable Week 11 fantasy play.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (core) is expected to play today vs. the Colts but will be on a "pitch count," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Lazard has been sidelined since Week 3. So WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling remains a better fantasy bet than Lazard today -- but we're expecting Lazard to take back #2 WR duties before long.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (core) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Colts. HC Matt LaFleur said earlier in the week that Lazard will be limited if he suits up for the 1st time since Week 3. He’s not a bankable fantasy play this week, but his return would add downside to WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (core) has been activated from IR. He'll presumably return for this weekend's game against the Colts. Lazard has been out since Week 3 but opened the season strong with lines of 4-63-1, 3-45 and 6-146-1. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling has strung together a couple of nice outings, but we're still expecting Lazard to re-emerge as Green Bay's #2 WR.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Packers WR Allen Lazard (core) is unlikely to play against the Jaguars this weekend. Lazard is reportedly still dealing with soreness and, as usual, Green Bay will be cautious bringing an injured player back. "Expect him back next week," Rapoport adds. Marquez Valdes-Scantling gets 1 more game as the Packers' #2 WR.
