Friday update: Lazard will be questionable and a game-time decision after getting in practices all week.

Thursday update: Lazard was once again practicing on Thursday, per Wes Hodkiewicz. He appears on track to make a return to the field this weekend.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard is expected to return to practice Wednesday after missing the Week 8 matchup against the Bills with a shoulder injury. The Packers are preparing to face the Detroit Lions on Sunday, November 6.

Fantasy football implications for Week 9

Lazard’s return is good news for Aaron Rodgers, but could be bad news for Romeo Doubs, who had a breakout game last week in Lazard’s absence. Lazard leads the team in receiving yards, with 340 and four touchdowns amassed so far this season.

The Packers were faced with a lot of injuries in their WR group last week, so Lazard’s return can be expected to make a major impact, particularly against a Lions team that ranks close to last in pass defense in the NFL.

Lazard had 55 yards over six receptions in his last appearance on the field two weeks ago.
