Mike McCarthy believes that Ryan Grant will be active for Sunday. The Packers are thin at running back with Cedric Benson, James Starks and Johnny White all either out or on injured reserve. “Frankly, where we are from a health standpoint, we might not have a choice,” said McCarthy. Grant will be behind Alex Green who will start for the Packers and is the teams leading rusher with 360 yards. Green is averaging just 3.3 yards per carry on the season. While Grant was a prominent fixture in the Packers backfield from 2007-2009 he has been injuried or ineffective since. This season with the Washington Redskins he had one carry for five yards before being released.

Driver's broken thumb adds to injury woes

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For the fourth straight game, a Packers player has been fined by the NFL for an illegal in-game hit. This week, it's cornerback Tramon Williams receiving a 21,000 fine for unnecessary roughness.Williams was flagged late in the third quarter of Green Bay's win over the Minnesota Vikings when he struck running back Toby Gerhart on an incomplete pass near...

Production a key for Packers running game

With the reigning NFL MVP at quarterback, the Green Bay Packers are never going to be a pound-it-out, run-first operation. Opposing defenses insist on playing their safeties deep in cover-2 schemes, a tactic meant to take away the Packers' downfield passing game while daring them to run. So the party line that the success of the Green Bay running game is measured more on the...

Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers: Week 14 NFL Pick

Detroit Lions (4-8) at Green Bay Packers (8-4) This is a really interesting game. Earlier this week, I wrote about some of the parity related things that happen every single year and how those could be used to help predict games the rest of the way. The Lions are by far the likeliest candidate to be this year’s team that goes from in the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer. Only the Saints...
