NFL: Packers missing top four WRs at practice


The Green Bay Packers practiced Thursday without their top four wide receivers.

Starters Allen Lazard (ankle), Sammy Watkins (hamstring) and Randall Cobb (illness), and Christian Watson (hamstring) all did not practice (DNP) ahead of their Week 3 game against Tampa Bay.

All but Cobb practiced Wednesday but were listed as limited.

Lazard missed Week 1 after his ankle was stepped on in practice the week before. Watkins and rookie Romeo Doubs lead the wideout corps with six catches each through two games. Watkins has 111 yards to Doubs’ 64.

The Packers sport just two throwing touchdowns in two games – one each to Lazard and running back Aaron Jones.

Tight end Marcedes Lewis (groin) also missed practice.

Tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) was back at practice Thursday after a DNP on Wednesday.

The Packers re-signed WR Travis Fulgham to the practice squad Thursday, joining Juwann Winfree. The Packers have three healthy WRs currently on the 53-man roster: Doubs, Samori Toure and Amari Rodgers.

The Packers (1-1) play at Tampa Bay (2-0) on Sunday.
