Allen Lazard A Healthy Scratch Again

Sunday, January 7, 12:11 PM

New York Jets wide receiver Allen Lazard will fittingly end his first year with the team in the Week 18 regular season finale against the New England Patriots as a healthy scratch on Sunday. He was a full participant all week despite dealing with an illness and was removed from the final injury report on Friday, but he won't be active on Sunday. It is his second healthy scratch of the season and he'll finish with only 23 receptions for 311 yards and one touchdown in 14 games for the Jets. The 28-year-old former Green Bay Packer was brought in to serve as a reliable target for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but that went out the window when Rodgers was lost for the year in Week 1 with a torn Achilles. With Lazard out on Sunday, Jason Brownlee and Xavier Gipson should continue to get more opportunities in the passing game behind No. 1 Garrett Wilson.

Quentin Johnston Makes Two Catches To Wrap Up His Rookie Season

Monday, January 8, 12:33 AM

Los Angeles Chargers rookie wide receiver Quentin Johnston made two catches against the Kansas City Chiefs backups in Week 18 to finally and mercifully end his tough rookie season. Johnston, who was drafted in the first round, ended up making just 38 catches for 431 yards and two touchdowns all year. In Week 18, he turned five targets into two catches for 17 yards. He'll be back for the 2024 season with a whole new coach and (likely) offensive coordinator, so it will be interesting to see if they will be able to turn around one of the biggest busts of the 2023 draft.
