The Green Bay Packers have hit a rough patch this season, currently riding a three-game losing streak. They will try to bounce back in a tough matchup against the Buffalo Bills in Week 8, but it looks like they will do so without top wide receiver Allen Lazard.
Lazard suffered a shoulder injury in the team’s loss to the Washington Commanders last week and recently shared some concerning details about the injury.
He revealed that he felt a “snap, crackle, and pop,” in his shoulder, and then hilariously joked that “the three Rice Krispie men showed up, too.”

"Snap – crackle – pop; @ricekrispies man showed up too — No not the good kind"
Concern long term?
"No not at all"
Concern for this week?
"No probably not"
As in probably not going to play?

While it seems like he is in good spirits despite the injury, he did reveal that he will likely be out for their upcoming matchup against Buffalo.
Allen Lazard said he heard a “snap, crackle and pop” in his left shoulder.
“And the three Rice Krispie men showed up, too.”
On a serious note, he said this week vs. Buffalo is probably a no go. But he’s not concerned that it’s a long-term issue.

Allen Lazard has been easily the best receiver for Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers this year, leading the team in both receiving yards and touchdowns on the year.
Considering Rodgers’ constant bashing of the inexperienced wide receivers for Green Bay, he is certainly not going to be happy that he will likely be without Lazard this week.
Buffalo is currently favored over Green Bay by a whopping 10.5 points in Sunday’s matchup according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
