DeShawn Wynn was placed on injured reserve today, after injuring his shoulder in the second quarter last night. Koren Robinson takes his roster spot.
Wynn’s injury was described as something like a stinger, but more problematic. Wynn was the most effective Packer runner through the first six weeks, which is something like being the smartest Vikings fan — not much to brag about.
I think Ryan Grant could be effective going forward. Much is being made of the fact that Grant’s yards came against a woeful Denver run defense. Fair enough. But a look at the Packers’ schedule shows lots of matchups against crappy defenses. Grant will be tested over the next couple of weeks against the Chiefs and the Vikings. But after that, he only faces one run defense in the top 15 (the Cowboys on 11/29) the rest of the way. The others are: Carolina (19), Detroit (18), Oakland (30), St. Louis (25), Chicago (26) and Detroit again. Not exactly tough sledding.
