Packers receiver Allen Lazard will be a game-time decision.

The Green Bay Packers haven’t activated wide receiver Allen Lazard from injured reserve yet, but there’s a chance they will in time for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Packers’ number two wide receiver has been out with a core muscle injury since his career-best game in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints.

Getting him back will be a huge boost for this offense, and it’s still possible he’ll make his return this week against his former team.

For as great as this offense has been in the first half of the season, we’ve only seen one full game with both Davante Adams and Lazard active.

Adams got injured halfway through the Week 2 game against the Detroit Lions. Lazard then had a big game in Week 3 but also suffered an injury. When Lazard returns, we’ll get to see them both out there at the same time.

The last time they both played a full game together was in the season opener against the Minnesota Vikings. Adams caught 14 passes for 156 yards and two touchdowns while Lazard had four catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. Combined, they had 21 targets, 18 catches, 219 yards, and three touchdowns. Lazard also had a 19-yard carry.

Lazard had made a great start to the season before getting injured. He had a career-day in Week 3 against the Saints, catching six passes for 146 yards and a touchdown.

Another boost for the Packers’ offense is that left tackle David Bakhtiari is set to make his return. He practiced in full all week and doesn’t carry an injury designation on the Week 10 injury report. Aaron Jones returned last week and has now practiced fully all week, meaning he’s good to go.

If Lazard can also make his return this week, the Packers offense will be in great shape against the Jaguars.
