Even though he was cleared from a concussion he suffered two weeks ago, Packers running back Alex Green did not play a single snap.
Green was the team's lead rusher before he suffered the concussion and it was very surprising to see that he wasn't on the field. After the game, Green said he was completely cleared and ready to play.
However, he said that when DuJuan Harris came into the game after Ryan Grant started and played a series, the running game took off. Harris finished with 70 yards on 14 carries.
"Everything was fine," Green said. "I got the same amount of snaps I usually get in practice. Nothing was different. I think they just wanted to go with the hot hand."
Harris is the best bet for touches out of the Packer backfield, but anything can happen with Mike McCarthy's "hot hand" approach.
