The Green Bay Packers have come to terms with veteran running back Ryan Grant. The former leader of the Packers backfield will help bolster a skill position depleted by injuries.
Grant's 4,016 career rushing yards is fifth on Green Bay's all-time rushing list. He was not re-signed after last season and was picked up by Washington on September 26. He played in just one game before being released.
For Green Bay, Cedric Benson was the first to go down and was placed on injured reserve. James Starks has also seen his season flash before his eyes because of injury. His chances of being placed on injured reserve also seem pretty high.
The latest news reported by ESPN Wednesday afternoon is that second year running back Johnny White was placed on injured reserve Wednesday with a concussion.
Alex Green, John Kuhn and Ryan Grant are now the only three Green Bay backs still standing with any NFL experience.
