The Redskins will sign former Packers RB Ryan Grant, according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora. Grant had worked out for the Bears earlier in the day on Tuesday.

Grant played in 15 games last season with 14 starts and rushed for 559 yards on 134 carries with two touchdowns. He also had 19 catches for 268 yards, including an 80-yard receiving score.

Grant had back-to-back seasons of 1,200 yards rushing in 2008-09. The 29-year-old suffered a season-ending leg injury in 2010.

The Redskins’ backfield will now have Grant, Alfred Morris, Roy Helu and Evan Royster. Morris, a rookie, has led the team with 61 carries for 263 yards.
