Packers RB Green Impresses In Comeback From Injury

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- When the Green Bay Packers decided not to re-sign veteran running back Ryan Grant in the offseason, they didn't quite know if one of his potential replacements would be ready for the start of the upcoming season.

But Alex Green appears to be a fast healer.

The second-year player has caught the eye of coaches and teammates since returning to the field for the start of the Packers' training camp, nine months after suffering a severe knee injury.

Green is being limited in the early part of camp, but coach Mike McCarthy has been pleased with how last year's third-round draft pick has performed after the first three days.

The Packers are looking at a young group of backs to take some pressure off quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
