Packers’ Allen Lazard questionable to return vs. Seahawks
Green Bay has built up a nice 21-3 lead at halftime. However, not everything is going their way. Allen Lazard is one of their top receivers; he had to leave the contest early on due to an ankle injury. Now he’s questionable to return.

The Packers are not exactly known for their talented targets. Yes, Davante Adams is one of the best wide receivers in all of football. However, after that, Green Bay is thin at the position. So losing one of the better receivers early on in a playoff game is not great news.
Now, Lazard has not been ruled out. So there’s always a chance he returns sometime in the second half. For now, though, Green Bay will have to play on without him.
The good news for them is that a 21-3 lead at half time is certainly nothing to sneeze at. They are in a great position with just one half left.
However, they are going up against an extremely dangerous team in Seattle. A team that gets the ball to start the second half. Also, a team that has been known to have dominating performances on both sides of the ball. So not having a top receiver could become an issue.
Lazard recorded 35 receptions for 477 yards and three touchdowns in the regular season for the Packers. All three of those stats were second amongst wide receivers on the roster. If the Packers do indeed have to finish the game without him, it will be a significant loss.
So far, they are proving they’re up to the challenge, though.
