Green Bay Packers wideout Allen Lazard has been hampered by both core and wrist injuries this season. The ailments have clearly held Lazard back, so a bye week for Wild Card Weekend would've hopefully helped him get close to 100%.

However, Lazard was limited in pratice on Tuesday, which is concerning for his status against the Los Angeles Rams this weekend.

Despite having Wild Card Weekend off, it still seems like Lazard is being plagued by his injuries for another week.

Lazard only averaged 2.9 receptions and 28.1 yards per game after returning to the lineup in Week 11, recording more than 4 receptions just once from Weeks 11-17. He was incredibly quiet in the Packers' regular-season finale, managing to grab just two passes for 17 yards.

Against the top defense in the league, Green Bay will need each one of its weapons to perform if it hopes to advance to the conference championship.

Star wideout Davante Adams will likely draw lots of attention from L.A.'s secondary, meaning there's an increased need for Green Bay's other options to step up.

The Packers enter this Divisional Round matchup as 6.5-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
