Ryan Grant isn't bitter. He's just in a hurry.

The Green Bay Packers' veteran running back made it clear when he re-signed with his former team on Dec. 5 that he wasn't harboring a grudge over the club's decision to sign another veteran running back, Cedric Benson, in August. And he also said he wasn't mad that when injuries struck, the Packers added two young, unproven backs before finally giving him a call.

Grant has spent most of the year out of football and just wants to keep things moving, as he did last Sunday, when he carried 20 times for 80 yards and two touchdowns and added a 34-yard catch-and-run in the Packers' 55-7 blowout of the Tennessee Titans.

If the Packers beat the Vikings Sunday and secure the NFC's No. 2 seed and the first-round bye, the team could have four halfbacks at its disposal in the NFC Divisional round.
