McCarthy said that Grant's hamstring was very sore at halftime last night and that affected him even on his long run in the 2nd half.

I certainly hope this doesn't linger on for the entire season. We need Grant. Brandon Jackson still seems to run timid and too indecisive.

Thoughts?

Wait, didn't Brandon Jackson run all over the Lions last season in the last game?

I say if he's still really sore, rest him against the Lions.

I know that doesn't sound good, but I think we can still beat the Lions with Jackson and Lumpkin. It'd be more important to have Grant 100% for the Dallas game.

Thoughts?

I'm pretty sure Grant was pretty pooped his first game last season. I expect him to get into the groove after a couple of games.

My thoughts? We will beat the Lions without Grant. Rest Grant. We'll need him for the important games.

I think Mike McCarthy knows what he is doing.


We are gonna beat the :xcensoredx: out of the Lions early and often. By mid second quarter, Grant will be done for the game and resting.

Being tired or fatigued is different from injury. Hamstring injuries may seem small, but can really affect a guy throughout the season. If he doesn't feel good come Sunday, then keep him out.

So true. I pulled a hammy when I played summer softball. It bothered me all year long. I know I have never been in the same condition these guys are in but it is hard to get them healed up.
