Buried in the Bret Bielema avalanche is the fact that James Starks looks like he's out for the season after his first productive game of the season. Sounds about right. So for about 3 hours we were back to just Alex Green before Ted Thompson apparently just re-signed Ryan Grant to a contract. Although the person reporting this? Ryan Grant himself. Got to kind of wonder if he's pulling a Costanza here and just 'showing back up.' I mean he knows we have injury problems, and the words 'Alex Green' and 'feature back' don't inspire too much confidence that I'll be at a Return to Titletown in February so what the heck, just say on Twitter that you're back and see what happens! Who knows, maybe Thompson went on a bender last night and doesn't remember that he signed him. Teddy Ballgame just gets a cab ride back to Lambeau after a night on the town and opens Facebook to stalk some of his ex-Packer players. Finds pictures of Grant running for 200 in the snow against Seattle and gets sentimental. Sends him a drunk text and before you know it Grant is back in the fold. Thompson wakes up today; 'I did WHAT?' 'That is the LAST time I order a fishbowl for one.'
Honestly this doesn't seem like a bad move and actually it's pretty much our only move. Get some experience, a guy who knows the offense, and honestly a guy who I thought was underrated during his time here. Back to back 1,200+ yard seasons, double digit touchdowns three years ago and really wasn't too bad last season after coming back from the ACL. The only problem? He hasn't played much and could be an injury risk. If he goes down we might have to call Samkon Gado or just put pads on Edgar Bennett again.
