Allen Lazard is active for the Packers in Week 11.

This afternoon, the Green Bay Packers will have wide receiver Allen Lazard, cornerback Kevin King, and punter JK Scott all active against the Indianapolis Colts.

All three players were listed as questionable on the injury report.

This means the Packers will have their top three wide receivers back for this game. They haven’t had all three active together since the victory over the Detroit Lions in Week 2. Up against the league’s top-ranked defense, this is a huge boost for the Packers offense.

Green Bay also gets its starting combination at cornerback back. Both Jaire Alexander and King were out last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars but make their return this afternoon against the Colts.

Lazard is returning from a core muscle injury he suffered in Week 3. King is returning from a quad injury that kept him out of five games, but he was questionable due to an Achilles injury but will play. Scott was questionable due to a personal matter but will also play.

The Packers released their full list of Week 11 inactives.

Quarterback Jordan Love remains inactive with Tim Boyle backing up Aaron Rodgers. Cornerback Ka’dar Hollman, running back Tyler Ervin, linebacker Jonathan Garvin, defensive tackle Montravius Adams, and punter Drew Kaser are all inactive.

Kaser was signed earlier this week in case Scott was unable to play.

Green Bay is about as healthy as they’ve been for most of the season. The team is finally healthy at wide receiver with both Davante Adams and Lazard active, while they also get more depth in the secondary.

Even with a number of key players returning, this will be a challenging game for the Packers up against a playoff-contending Colts team with an excellent defense. It should make for an interesting game and a win would be huge for the Packers.
