Packers WR Allen Lazard on COVID list; Cardinals’ stars hobbling

Another Green Bay Packers wide receiver hit the COVID-19 list Tuesday when the team shifted Allen Lazard to the restricted reserve designation.

Ahead of their visit to Arizona for a Thursday game with the undefeated Cardinals, the Packers (6-1) are unlikely to have Davante Adams or Lazard in uniform.

Per NFL Network, Lazard is unvaccinated and would be out five days. Adams could travel to Arizona as late as Thursday if he produces two negative tests.

“I have talked to him,” Rodgers said of Adams. “He seems to be health-wise doing OK. Obviously, he’s disappointed.”

The Cardinals (7-0) also are fighting injuries.

Defensive lineman J.J. Watt (shoulder) did not practice Tuesday, while wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) also was sidelined and linebacker Jordan Hicks (toe) was limited.

Hopkins has 33 receptions for 420 yards and seven touchdowns — all team highs — for the Cardinals in 2021.

Adams, who leads the Packers with 52 receptions for 744 yards through seven games, and defensive coordinator Joe Barry landed on the COVID list Monday. Barry is not traveling with the team to the Phoenix area.

It’s possible the Packers will get wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling back for the game. He has missed four games on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.

Head coach Matt LaFleur said Tuesday that Valdes-Scantling “has a chance” to play this week.

Right tackle Dennis Kelly (back) was the only player the Packers listed as “DNP” on Tuesday, but Green Bay’s injury report was an approximation of workout availability since the team didn’t hold a practice.

Lazard is currently tied for third on the team with 15 receptions this season.
