The penalty was enforced on the kickoff...

Grant's deal with Packers reduced if he goes on IR

The contract that Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant signed earlier in the week is a split contract, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The one-year deal is for the league minimum $700,000 but is reduced to $368,000 if the oft-injured Grant ends up on injured reserve.

Anonymous Lions player calls out Ndamukong Suh and his teammates

First off let me say that I can’t stand when anonymous players or GM’s rip players on other teams or players on their team.  If you’re gonna talk smack about someone, put your name to it if you truly mean it.  It’s cowardly to do this.But, after the Detroit Lions most recent heartbreaking loss to the Indianapolis Colts, another person spoke out to the media about Ndamukong...

Lions-Packers Live Blog, Second Half

Detroit jumped out to a 14-point lead, then proceeded to give it away in a highly Lions fashion.
