It was hard for the Green Bay Packers to lose running back Ryan Grant for the season with an ankle injury in Week 1 at Philadelphia.
Even though the win was bittersweet, the Green and Gold lost their leading rusher for the season.
Grant had over 1,200 yards last season, and he stays in shape in the offseason.
Nothing prepared the Packers for the disaster they would face now.
Signing DeShawn Wynn, who knows the system, is an insurance policy for the team.
Brandon Jackson will get more touches, and Wynn must be ready in case Jackson goes down.
In football, injuries are a part of the game, and the next man must step up.
Despite the loss of Grant, the show must go on.
At this point, other teams don't feel any pity for the Packers, who were picked to make the Super Bowl.
If the running game stalls, then quarterback Aaron Rodgers will have to throw the ball more, which is probably something the receivers and tight ends love.
