According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, there's "virtually no chance" the Packers re-sign Ryan Grant.
The Packers added Grant out of desperation in Week 13 and he struggled in three games as a late-season timeshare back. At age 30, he's doubtful to attract interest on the open market. Grant went unsigned for the first month of the 2012 regular season, and it's fair to wonder if his NFL career is over. Sat, Jan 26, 2013 07:38:00 PM

Ryan Grant rushed just twice for two yards at Minnesota in Week 17.

Both of the carries came in the first quarter. Grant was a non-factor the rest of the way as the Packers opted to stay with DuJuan Harris' hot hand. We expected a bigger role after last week's two touchdown performance, but Grant is rightly viewed as a niche player. That could change if Harris struggles in the playoffs.

Ryan Grant rushed 20 times for 80 yards with two touchdowns in the Packers' 55-7 Week 16 win over the Titans.

With Cedric Benson (foot) on IR, James Starks (knee) out indefinitely and Alex Green nursing a concussion, the Packers called on Grant. He responded by getting what was blocked in a dream matchup, and that turned out to be a lot. The 20 carries are the most for Grant since Week 14 of the 2009 season. As long as Green gets cleared, expect a rotation in Week 17 and the playoffs this year.

Ryan Grant will start Sunday's game against the Titans with Alex Green (concussion) inactive.

The matchup is certainly right as the Packers figure to get a lead at home and pound on the Titans' No. 25 rush defense. However, Grant lacks burst, doesn't contribute as a receiver and will be part of a committee as DuJuan Harris and John Kuhn will also see snaps. Consider Grant a desperation flex only in non-PPR formats. The rest of the Packers' inactives: WR Jordy Nelson, S Charles Woodson, RB James Starks, TE Tom Crabtree, DE C.J. Wilson and DE Jerel Worthy.

Coach Mike McCarthy's isn't holding Ryan Grant's Week 15 lost fumble against the veteran back.

McCarthy chalked the fumble up to Charles Tillman's penchant for punching the ball out. "We had the confidence to put (Grant) back in the game," said McCarthy. Grant saw four carries in the game's final six minutes after fumbling. He could end up starting versus the Titans with Alex Green's (concussion) status in doubt.

Ryan Grant rushed once for 13 yards in Green Bay's Week 14 win over the Lions.

Grant drew a nice ovation from the home crowd, but was otherwise an afterthought behind Alex Green and DuJuan Harris, who combined for 20 carries. Grant is extremely unlikely to come into fantasy value in any format the final three weeks of the season.
Mon, Dec 10, 2012 12:52:00 AM

Packers RBs coach Alex Van Pelt confirms that Ryan Grant will have only a minor role if active versus the Lions on Sunday.

"You have to play football to be in football shape, obviously," Van Pelt said. "So we're obviously not going to throw (Grant) out there this week and expect him to carry the load or anything like that. It'll be some spot duty this week and as he gets stronger and into football shape, he'll have more of a role." Alex Green will handle the bulk of the carries in Week 14.

Coach Mike McCarthy believes newly signed RB Ryan Grant will be active Sunday.

"Frankly, where we are from a health standpoint, we might not have a choice," said McCarthy. Cedric Benson, James Starks and Johnny White are all either out or on injured reserve. Starks certainly knows the system after spending the first five years of his career with the Packers. He'll serve as early-down insurance behind starter Alex Green.

Packers agreed to terms with RB Ryan Grant.

Last season, Grant played in 15 games for the Packers, averaging 8.9 carries for 37.2 yards and rushing for two touchdowns. But thanks to a striking decline in burst, he was never a real option to re-sign in free agency. Even after Cedric Benson initially went down with his foot injury earlier this year, the Packers let Grant languish on the street. But now that Benson is officially done for the season and James Starks (knee) will soon be joining him, desperation has struck. Look for Grant, who turns 30 on Sunday, to serve as mere insurance behind Alex Green on early downs while battling with John Kuhn and DuJuan Harris for backup reps.

Redskins released RB Ryan Grant.

Grant lasts just four weeks on the roster and saw one carry. He goes to make room for Keiland Williams, who brings much more versatility in terms of running, blocking and special teams. Grant is no lock to get picked up by another team after failing to push Evan Royster for backup duties behind clear workhorse Alfred Morris.
Tue, Oct 23, 2012 12:09:00 PM

Ryan Grant is active for Week 5, which will be his debut as a Redskin.

Either Grant or Evan Royster will back up Alfred Morris against the Falcons. We suspect it will be Royster because he's a better passing-down option than the former Packer. For Grant, we wouldn't expect more than 4-6 touches assuming he gets the ball at all. Morris is entrenched as Washington's workhorse.
Sun, Oct 7, 2012 11:46:00 AM

Coach Mike Shanahan is unsure if Ryan Grant will make his Redskins debut in Week 5.

Grant was a healthy scratch in Week 4, and may not have picked up enough of the playbook to suit up against the Falcons. It's a reminder that despite Shanahan's infamous running back ways, Grant isn't a serious threat for fantasy relevance in Washington.
Wed, Oct 3, 2012 06:21:00 PM

Redskins agreed to terms with RB Ryan Grant.

Grant reportedly weighed offers from "multiple" teams, though we suspect the Redskins may have been the only franchise willing to part with much in the way of guaranteed money. Grant will be strictly a backup with the Redskins, spelling starter Alfred Morris while Roy Helu (turf toe) and Evan Royster (knee) miss time with injuries. Helu was in a walking boot after Sunday's game. We wouldn't bother adding Grant in 12- and 14-team leagues.

Although free agent RB Ryan Grant had an "impressive" workout with the Bears Tuesday, he's expected to sign a contract with another team.

Grant had previously worked out for the Lions, but we wonder if the mystery team might be the Redskins. The team's brass had reportedly volleyed the idea of signing Grant before training camp opened, and the backup duo of Roy Helu (turf toe) and Evan Royster (knee) is nursing injuries this week. In addition to Grant, the Bears also worked out Jacob Hester.
Tue, Sep 25, 2012 05:38:00 PM

Free agents RB Ryan Grant and Jacob Hester are working out for the Bears Tuesday.

Michael Bush took some big hits during last week's win over the Rams, but insisted he emerged healthy. Coach Lovie Smith said the same thing. We're not aware of any injuries to Kahlil Bell or Armando Allen either, so the Bears are probably just updating their emergency list. Grant previously had a workout with the Lions but wasn't signed.
