Lazard is latest to go on COVID-19 list

-

Green Bay’s decimated receiving group has taken one more hit as the Packers prepare to face the unbeaten Arizona Cardinals.

Allen Lazard joined 2020 All-pro wideout Davante Adams on the reserve/ COVID-19 list Tuesday. Adams was placed on the list Monday.

That means neither receiver is likely to play Thursday at Arizona (7-0).

Lazard’s potential absence would make it even tougher for the Packers to maintain their uncanny level of success in games Adams has missed.

Adams has sat out six games since 2019 because of injury. The Packers have won them all.

“We’re not a better team without him, that’s for sure,” Rodgers said. “I’d have to look at each of those games, but we’ve just found a way to win those games.”

Rodgers said he had spoken with Adams since the news broke Monday.

“He seems to be healthwise doing OK,” Rodgers said. “Obviously, he’s disappoint­ed.”

Green Bay also likely will be without defensive coordinato­r Joe Barry, who tested positive this week. Receiver

Malik Taylor had been on the reserve/covid-19 list since Oct. 15, but was activated Tuesday.

Giants’ Peppers heads to IR with leg injuries

The New York Giants have placed safety Jabrill Peppers on injured reserve with a rupture to the ACL and a high ankle sprain, both on his right leg.

Peppers was hurt in the third quarter on a punt return in the Giants’ 25-3 victory over the Carolina Panthers. He is the third of the Giants’ team captains to suffer a season-ending injury, joining center-guard Nick Gates (broken leg) and linebacker Blake Martinez (ACL).

The Giants also waived cornerback Josh Jackson and wide receiver David Sills on Tuesday. Defensive back J.R. Reed terminated his practice squad contract with the Los Angeles Rams and will join the Giants’ active roster Wednesday.
