The last couple of games, the Packers have been using a three-man rotation in terms of running the football. The running backs are Alex Green, DuJuan Harris and Ryan Grant.
Sunday's game against the Bears continued that trend. Green had 13 carries for 35 yards, Harris had five carries for 27 yards, and Grant had eight carries for 32 yards.
It should be noted that both Green and Harris are only in their second seasons in the NFL, while this is Grant's sixth NFL season.
The Packers were in the process of driving for another score in the game on Sunday versus the Bears, holding a 21-7 lead, when Grant had a costly fumble with a little over five minutes to go in the third quarter at the 37-yard line of Chicago.
The recovery by the Bears led to a field goal, which tightened up a game that probably would have been iced with another Green Bay score.
Bottom line: veterans like Grant can not be putting the ball on the ground. That is not why the Packers brought him back a couple weeks ago.
Yes, Grant did gain 14 yards on the play he fumbled, but he has to be aware of players like Charles Tillman, who stripped away the football. Stripping the ball is Tillman's calling card in the NFL.
Grant should know that, especially playing against the Bears so many times like he has.
