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 Green Bay’s 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.

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.

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

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