Packers | Not worried about running game

Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin is not worried about the running game despite an injury to RB Ryan Grant (ankle), reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Lori Nickel. "I thought Brandon Jackson ran well," said Philbin. "Broke some tackles. We have some really good clips of him breaking tackles, which is something we have been emphasizing. I don't want to minimize Ryan's contributions. I think our running game was pretty solid. I wish it was a little more consistent." Jackson is the only remaining running back on the roster, though FB John Kuhn, who works with the running backs every day, can also play the position. "They're able to do some things that not your normal running backs could do," said Kuhn of all the fullbacks. "We're used to the playbook and we know what to do on third down. Same with the running backs, too. They have to block as well."
