Pass-Happy Pack Can't Forget About Grant


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- While Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers' passing game has been tough to stop in the preseason, their running game hasn't had much of a workout -- at least when the first-team offense has been on the field.

Offensive coordinator Joe Phil bin says the Packers would like to get running back Ryan Grant a few more carries to make sure he and the first-team offensive line get a running start going into regular season. The Packers take on Indianapolis during a preseason game Thursday night at Lambeau Field.

Grant left the first preseason game against Cleveland after sustaining a concussion on the Packers' third offensive play of the game. He returned for the second preseason game at Seattle but didn't get much work.
