Ryan Grant returns to the PackersSubmitted: 12/05/2012
Story By Green Bay Packers Communications

GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers signed RB Ryan Grant, placed RB Johnny White (concussion) on injured reserve, and signed T/G Shea Allard and S Chaz Powell to the practice squad.

Grant, a 6-foot-1, 222-pound sixth-year player out of Notre Dame, played in 63 games with 52 starts for the Packers from 2007-11 and rushed for 4,016 yards (No. 5 in team history) and 25 TDs on 924 carries (4.3 avg.) over that span. He topped the 1,200-yard rushing mark in both 2008 and 2009, one of only three players in franchise history (Ahman Green, Jim Taylor) to do so in consecutive years.


Grant was originally acquired by the Packers in September 2007 in a trade with the N.Y. Giants, the team that signed him as a non-drafted free agent in May 2005. Grant will wear No. 25.

Allard (Al-urd), a 6-foot-4, 305-pound rookie out of the University of Delaware, signed with the Packers as a non-drafted free agent in May 2012 after participating in Green Bay's rookie orientation camp on a tryout basis.

Powell, a 6-foot, 203-pound rookie out of Penn State, entered the NFL as a non-drafted free agent with the Oakland Raiders in May 2012. He was with the Raiders during the 2012 preseason before being released on Aug. 27.

RHINELANDER - You can help families stay warm this winter by donating your extra winter clothing to the Big Bundle Up Campaign. Tourism groups across Wisconsin are looking for mittens, scarves, coats, and other winter gear.

"Those would be really helpful for a lot of people in the area," Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Dana DeMet said. "And I think the biggest challenge in the Northwoods is that it's just not as visible, so it's a little harder sometimes to garner that support if you are not faced with it on the streets every day."
