GREEN BAY, Wis: (WFRV) – General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced Monday that the Packers have activated WR Allen Lazard from the reserve/COVID-19 list and placed both RB Kylin Hill and TE Robert Tonyan on injured reserve.

Hill had only 8 rushes for 24 yards this season, but was the Packers primary kickoff returner. Tonyan was 3rd in receptions with 18 catches for 204 yards and two touchdowns. Lazard returns after his biggest game of the season against Washington where he had 5 catches for 60 yards and a touchdown.

In his weekly Monday press conference head coach Matt LaFleur was asked about Tuesday’s trade deadline and responded, “If the right opportunity presents itself, I think that’s something we can be involved with. I know Gutey and his staff are working extremely hard at trying to find something. It just whether or not the right opportunity exists.”
