Saw the same thing. Discounting Kuhn, it's plausible that not 1 RB the Packers started the season with will be active for TN.

I wonder why we don't hear about this until 4 days after the fact.They have been playing hinky with the injury situation all year.

I wonder what Samkon Gado is doing this week?

I'm quite sure Green got his concussion from hit from Briggs along the sideline. It was clean, but all of Green's momentum was stopped and he went flying out of bounds.

That explains why Grant finished off the game.

Well it wasn't for his ball security skills.

Mr. Negativity strikes again.

I don't remember Ryan Grant as a fumbler, could it have been he was just a little rusty?

Shit happens, it didn't cost The Packers the game, but most improtantly Dak., it gives you something to bitch about as only you can.

Not sure if Harris is an every down RB, looks more like a cut out of the Darren Sproles model, which will be great if he turns out anywhere near the talent of Sproles.

I for one sure am glad there is a vet like Ryan Grant around, someone who has been there and done that, I don't expect to see the young RG out there, but hopin'(especially now), there is still a little bit left in the tank.

Packers need to win the next 2, get that bye week, and get these guys healthy for the playoff run.

Charles Tillman has made a career out of knocking the ball out. Tillman gave Jermichael Finley his 2nd career fumble during the first meeting in 2012. Most Ryan Grant has fumbled in a season was 1, other than his 2008 season when he had a monstrous THREE lost fumbles in 330 touches.

I don't like fumbles, but Grant was securing the ball properly. It's more kudos to Tillman than it is WTF Grant.

If Grant fumbles again this season ... THEN we can bash his ass within reason, lol.

It looked like on that play that 2 bears were trying the knock the ball out, 1 including Charles Tillman... I don't know if it was Conte but he was holding Grant while Charles punched away. Give credit to Tillman.

The Tillman punch out of that ball was remarkable, and a fantastic play by a great defender, adept at forcing fumbles. I cannot find too much fault with Grant for that one. Perfect punch out.

I'm glad we have Grant too. He will be fine. A great veteran presence to carry the load, and he looks like he's got some good wheels going.

Grant is the next man up.

I'm more worried about Lang.

Well if I'm Mr. Negativity, then you're Mr. Green and Gold Glasses living in Nostalgia land. You don't remember the Seattle playoff game in the snow, or the Giants playoff game last year? No, Grant doesn't ever fumble. [sarcasm] You just must be pissed Buckeye that DD has been riding pine all season.

No one said Ryan Grant doesn't ever fumble. Cute, putting words in people's mouths when you have no ground to stand. Most are saying Ryan Grant isn't prone to fumbling, and that it was more so a good play by the defender than a propensity of fumbling by the ball-carrier.

#17 Posted : Wednesday, December 19, 2012 6:29:40 PM(UTC)
Yeah, well I'm saying it's horse pucky that we had to go to he scrap heap for Grant as a last resort, where there are others here that feel he should have been on the roster all season. And I don't put words in people's mouths, I have a memory from their body of work as posters. Buckeye and I always bust each other's balls and I don't recall asking for a mediator.

That link's a link to their rumor mill section which constantly changes. Here's a link to the article in question:

I remember RG running roughshod over Seattle that game. 200+yds, again shit happens,

Sounds like Green will be back, so RG can finish off Titans after Green and Harris soften them up.

Driver broke his thumb several weeks ago, that's the main reason he was very limited and finally inactive.

I Still say Packers will need him when playoff time comes around.

Without Veteran leadership, all you have is "a bunch of young guys full of potential",

The playoffs are a different animal, Woody,DD, & RG will all contribute, even if it's not on the field.

If I recall RG had on some kind of rubberized arm bands at the start of the game. They were slick in the snow. After the two fumbles he took them off and didn't fumble again.

It was more a equipment issue than RG being fumble prone.
