Packers RB Recovering From Blow to Head
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Ryan Grant isn't against the NFL's recently toughened policy on concussions. The Green Bay Packers running back found himself wondering if he could've avoided the entire process had he gone down during Saturday's preseason opener instead of trying to walk off the field under his own power.

Grant left the Packers' 27-24 loss to the Cleveland Browns after three carries after Browns cornerback Sheldon Brown hit him in the left side of the helmet. Grant said Monday that he knew he wouldn't be able to stay in the game, so he made his way for the sideline right way.

The problem? He was woozy enough that he stumbled and had to stop about halfway to the bench, bringing out the medical staff.
