Falcons signed RB Dimitri Nance to a reserve/future contract.
Nance is a pedestrian runner, but knows how to pass protect, can play on third downs, and contributes on special teams. The Falcons want to increase their no-huddle usage under new OC Dirk Koetter. Nance will push for a roster spot. Fri, Jan 20, 2012 05:37:00 PM

Date:

Packers waived or released RB Dimitri Nance, RB Brandon Saine, OG Ray Dominguez, OT Chris Campbell, NT Chris Donaldson, LB Ricky Elmore, CB Josh Gordy, FB Jon Hoese, LB Cardia Jackson and LB Elijah Joseph.

Nance took the ball just 96 yards on 35 carries last season, and was made expendable by the emergence of James Starks and the selection of Alex Green in last spring's draft.
Sat, Sep 3, 2011 07:13:00 PM

Dimitri Nance rushed nine times for 32 yards against the Giants in Week 16.

The Packers stayed true to their committee attack with Nance, Brandon Jackson, and John Kuhn all seeing at least six carries. Nance showed little wiggle, simply pounding his way into heavy traffic with a long run of just six yards. He's not a fantasy option in Week 17.
Sun, Dec 26, 2010 07:39:00 PM

Packers declared SS Atari Bigby, RB Dimitri Nance, G Nick McDonald, OL Marshall Newhouse, DE Jarius Wynn, LB Matt Wilhelm, CB Patrick Lee, and S Anthony Smith inactive for Weke 13.

Greg Jennings will be active. James Starks will be active for the first time this season, though it remains to be seen how the team uses him. There are no other surprises for the Pack.
Sun, Dec 5, 2010 11:43:00 AM

Packers RB Dimitri Nance (concussion) returned to practice Thursday.

We assume that means he's passed his concussion tests. Assuming he has no setbacks, Nance should return to being the Packers' goal-line back this week, with John Kuhn sticking at fullback. It appears James Starks will be among the inactives again.
Thu, Dec 2, 2010 12:35:00 PM

Packers RB Dimitri Nance's (concussion) was able to run hard on the side during Wednesday's practice.

We're not sure if Nance has been cleared yet, but it's good that he's at least doing something at practice. He'll need to participate in contact drills to be ready for Week 13, though. If he sits out, James Starks would be on the active roster for the first time.
Wed, Dec 1, 2010 01:01:00 PM

Packers RB Dimitri Nance's (concussion) status for Week 13 is unclear.

Nance will go through the normal battery of tests for a concussion, so we won't know his status for Week 13 until later in the week. If Nance is unable to go Sunday, John Kuhn would likely go back to being the goal-line back, and James Starks could get his first opportunity for some playing time.

Packers RB Dimitri Nance suffered a concussion in the team's Week 12 loss to the Falcons.

The undrafted rookie did not return and was replaced by John Kuhn in short-yardage sets. Nance finished with one carry for no yards, getting stuffed on his only goal-line run but still showing the ability to keep his feet moving after initial contact. Nance's status for Week 13 is uncertain.
Sun, Nov 28, 2010 06:34:00 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy suggested this week that Dimitri Nance has bypassed John Kuhn for the No. 2 spot on the running back depth chart.

"I look forward to going forward with him and Brandon. I think that is a good 1-2 punch," McCarthy said. "Now that we have him involved, he's caught up on everything, and I would like to get him more in the flow of the game." With a squatty build, Nance is ideally suited for Kuhn's former short-yardage role. He's well worth carrying in TD-heavy leagues.
Fri, Nov 26, 2010 12:00:00 PM

Dimitri Nance revealed that the Packers have been grooming him to be their short-yardage back.

Nance, who's built like a bowling ball, was called on in a third-and-1 conversion in the first quarter Sunday and was used in short yardage from that point on. Most of his 12 carries came in garbage time, but it's worth noting that Nance may be looking at some goal-line work going forward.
Mon, Nov 22, 2010 11:02:00 AM

Dimitri Nance rushed 12 times for 37 yards in Sunday's win over the Vikings.

There's nothing to see here. Nance spelled Brandon Jackson a couple times, but most of his carries came in garbage time.
Sun, Nov 21, 2010 04:19:00 PM

Dimitri Nance reveled that he suffered a sprained ankle during practice on Friday.

Nance hasn't had a touch on offense since Week 2. He's primarily a special teamer.
Mon, Nov 1, 2010 09:25:00 AM

Green Bay declared RB Dimitri Nance, FB Quinn Johnson, RT Mark Tauscher, OL Marshall Newhouse, OL Nick McDonald, DE Ryan Pickett, LB Diyral Briggs, and CB Brandon Underwood inactive for Sunday's Week 8 matchup against the Jets.

Nance (ankle) was a late add to the injury report, though it's unknown whether his deactivation comes as a result of injury. Pickett (ankle) will be replaced by C.J. Wilson, and Bryan Bulaga will play in Tauscher's place. Look for the Jets to pound the ball on the right side. The Packers remain one of the league's most injured teams.
Sun, Oct 31, 2010 11:43:00 AM

Packers added RB Dimitri Nance (ankle) to the injury report.

Nance is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. The Packers backfield has been a roller coaster ride this season, and we suggest you steer clear of Nance.
Sat, Oct 30, 2010 10:54:00 AM

Packers coaches have only given RB Dimitri Nance a "small package of plays" thus far.

The coaching staff wanted to get Brandon Jackson established as the feature back before working Nance in. Jackson has averaged 15.3 touches and 108.7 yards over the past three weeks, so it's been a successful strategy. Nance may work in more on early downs, but he's not a threat to Jackson's job.
