Detroit Lions To Work Out Ryan Grant, Steve Slaton

Along with Steve Slaton, free agent running back Ryan Grant will be visiting the Detroit Lions for a workout, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

Grant has spent 2012 as a free agent, but was a member of the Green Bay Packers from 2007 to 2011. Last season. he played in 15 games for Green Bay, but managed to rush for only 559 yards and two touchdowns. Before suffering a season ending ankle injury in Week 1 of 2010, Grant had rushed for over 1,200 yards in both 2008 and 2009.

This is not the first time Ryan Grant has been reported to visit the Lions. Grant, reportedly, had a contract offer on the table from Detroit, but conflicting reports said that a visit to Detroit was never even scheduled.

The Lions have been thin at the running back position in 2012 with Mikel Leshoure and Jahvid Best yet to play this season.
