The Facts: While Ryan Grant's ongoing holdout hasn't cost him the No. 1 job, Jackson is more than keeping it warm, and with every carry he has received in training camp he has made a case for getting the ball. When Grant returns, Journal Sentinel staffer Tom Silverstein believes Jackson might be entrenched far enough that the two will share the starting position.
Diehards Line:What happens to Jackson will depend some on when Grant arrives and how quickly he can assimilate himself back into the offense. The one thing going for Grant is that he had a half-season as a starter and developed a good feel for what the Packers try to get done in the running game. In Grant's absence at camp, Jackson is getting the starter’s portion with veteran Vernand Morency rotating in. DeShawn Wynn, a second-year pro, remains third along with Noah Herron and rookie free agent Kregg Lumpkin. All of them are getting more snaps than they normally would because of Grant’s absence.
