Ex-Giant Grant makes Packers' running game go

Newsday—NEW YORK—January 15, 2008

At the time, the transaction barely made a ripple in the news cycle: Last Sept. 1, a few hours before the opening day roster was completed, the Giants traded running back Ryan Grant to the Packers for a sixth-round pick in the 2008 draft.

No big deal, right? After all, the guy hadn't played football in three years.

As it turns out, the trade might mean the difference between the Giants going to the Super Bowl or seeing their unlikely playoff run end in Green Bay in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.


Grant nearly bled to death after being cut by broken glass during an incident in a New York nightclub in March 2006. He had emergency surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery, and doctors feared he might not regain full use of his right arm.
