The veteran was signed Wednesday to add depth to Green Bay's banged up running backs. The Packers announced last week that Cedric Benson would stay on injured reserve with a foot injury, and Johnny White was placed on injured reserve Wednesday with a concussion. There are also multiple reports that James Starks was hurt in Sunday's victory over Minnesota, when he ran for a team-high 66 yards and scored Green Bay's third rushing touchdown.
Grant is fifth on Green Bay's all-time rushing list, running for 4,016 yards and 25 touchdowns from 2007-11. He was not re-signed in the offseason and was picked up by Washington on Sept. 26. He played one game before being released Oct. 23.
