GREEN BAY - Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst met with the media Monday, just six days before he would have to make five roster moves to get his team down to the mandatory 80 players to proceed through camp. It also gave him only one practice to watch (Saturday's opener) before deciding. Some players could end up on season-ending injured lists, but Gutekunst knows he’ll have to make some hard decisions based only on a virtual spring and conditioning work the last few weeks.
On a Zoom call with the media, LaFleur told reporters that opposing defensive backs “better put in their mouthguard and buckle up their chin strap” when Lazard on the field is blocking in the run game. Lazard has a unique affection for blocking that dates back to his days in high school. Going back to high school, I originally started playing safety in my freshman and sophomore season,” Lazard said on Sunday.
Green Bay Packers GM Brian Gutekunst expects third-year receiver Equanimeous St. Brown to be ready for the start of practice and eventually provide an impact during the 2020 season. St. Brown injured his ankle during the preseason last August and missed the entire 2019 season, but Gutekunst said he’s planning for the young receiver to be on the field when the Packers start practice this weekend. I would expect EQ to be ready,” Gutekunst said on Monday.
