A week after running back Ryan Grant signed with the Washington Redskins, one element, in particular, about the team’s offense stands out to him.


“This offense starts with the run, which is different from what I’m used to,” Grant, the former Green Bay Packer, said with a laugh Thursday. “I don’t think any running back would be opposed to that.”

Grant was inactive for last Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay. He is working to learn the offense as quickly as possible, but his status for this Sunday’s game against Atlanta is uncertain.

“He is getting more comfortable with the system,” coach Mike Shanahan said. “I can’t tell you for sure if he is going to be dressing, but I like what we’ve seen. I like the guy. He picks things up very quickly. He’s very sharp. You can see he has got some running skills, so it’s a good addition for us.”

“I feel like I’m picking up everything,” Grant said. “They’re doing a good job of bringing me along. It seems to be going pretty smoothly. We’ll see how it goes, but I’m preparing every week to be up. I’m going to make sure whenever I’m up I’ll be ready to go.”
