Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard said Thursday that he expects to miss this week’s game against the Buffalo Bills after injuring his shoulder last week.

Lazard added that his shoulder is not a long-term concern, but said “probably not” when asked about playing Sunday. Lazard missed practice for the second straight day on Thursday. Lazard said he suffered the injury on the final play of the third quarter in last week’s loss to the Washington Commanders, describing how it felt.

“Pop. Crack. Snack, crunch,” Lazard told reporters, referring to Rice Krispies cereal. “The three rice crispy men also appeared.”

Lazard, 26, has 26 catches for 340 yards and four touchdowns in six starts this season. He missed Week 1 with an ankle injury after being stepped on in practice.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (throwing thumb) returned Thursday as a limited participant after practicing Wednesday. He might not recognize his receivers on the practice field.

In addition to Lazard’s absence, Randall Cobb is on injured reserve and receivers Sammy Watkins and Romeo Dubs were limited for the second straight day with hamstring injuries.

In 2022, the leading receiver available for Thursday’s practice was rookie Christian Watson, who had seven receptions for 52 yards. Watson has been inactive for the last two games.

Left tackle David Bakhtiari did not participate Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Bakhtiari called his knee a “fluid situation” but did not elaborate. He missed last week’s game.

“It’s going to be a fluid situation for the rest of the year,” Packers coach Matt LaFleur said Thursday.

Linebacker Rushan Gary (concussion) was a limited participant Thursday after missing Wednesday. Cornerback Shemar Jean-Charles (shin) did not participate. Guard Elgton Jenkins (knee) was limited after a DNP on Wednesday. –Field-level media
