Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - [Full Article]

Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant has shown no signs of physical limitations in his comeback from a severe ankle and leg injury last season.

Come Friday night in Indianapolis, look for Packers head coach Mike McCarthy to give Grant a larger number of carries than the eight he has had in the Green Bay Packers' first two exhibition games.

"Running backs are just like quarterbacks," McCarthy said Friday night after the Packers beat the Arizona Cardinals, 28-20, at Lambeau Field. "Running backs need different looks. He needs reps. He'll be the first to tell you that."

Grant rushed five times for 23 yards. Combined with a 3-for-12 effort in Cleveland, Grant is averaging 4.4 per carry (8-35).

Fantasy Impact: 

Grant should have a nice comeback from his lost 2010 season, but the presence of James Starks and Green Bay's pass-happy offense caps his ceiling. Right now, he's being overdrafted in a lot of leagues. Don't reach to get Grant if you have a draft on the immediate horizon. Let him come to you.
