Following in the footsteps of Brandon Jackson and John Kuhn, who have both done a much better job replacing the injured Ryan Grant than most team observers expected, rookie Dimitri Nance will apparently be contributing an added boost to Green Bay’s ground game in the coming weeks. In a move that caught some team insiders off guard, Nance, who was plucked off Atlanta’s practice squad after Grant suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week One, replaced Kuhn as the Packers’ short-yardage specialist in the Week 11 win over Minnesota and picked up a team-high 37 yards on 12 carries. Nance showed impressive grit on his first run, picking up a first down on 3rd-and-1. Look for Nance to continue making an impact, although we hear it’s premature to anoint him as the new short-yardage specialist ahead of Kuhn, who has done nothing to warrant being dismissed from that role.
