The Packers coaching staff has awarded game balls to RB Ryan Grant (offense), LB A.J. Hawk (defense) and LB Frank Zombo (special teams) for their performances in the 55-7 victory over Tennessee on Sunday.
Grant, taking the bulk of the rushing workload for an injured Alex Green (concussion), rushed 20 times for 80 yards and two TDs. It was the most rushing yards by a Packers RB this season since Cedric Benson had 84 in Week 4 vs. New Orleans. It was also the most carries Grant has had in a game since late in the 2009 season. He added a 34-yard reception on a screen pass for 114 total yards from scrimmage.
Hawk was credited by the press box statisticians with seven tackles (six solo), including two sacks and three tackles for loss. He also had three QB hits. It was Hawk’s first two-sack game since 2008 as the Packers racked up seven sacks total of Tennessee QB Jake Locker.
Zombo was credited with one coverage tackle, bringing down Titans returner Darius Reynaud at the 21-yard line on the opening kickoff.
