Last Sunday's victory over the Philadelphia Eagles proved to be costly for the Green Bay Packers. The Packers lost running back Ryan Grant and defensive lineman Justin Harrell for the season.

Grant suffered an injured right ankle, which included ligament damage, while Harrell suffered a knee injury while playing during a first half Packers field goal. According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, it's believed to be damage to Harrell's ACL. The former first round draft pick from 2007 has played in just 14 games in four seasons, due to injuries.

The Packers played both Grant and Harrell on injured reserve, thus they cannot play for the rest of the season. Green Bay singed running back Dimitri Nance and defensive end Jarius Wynn to fill their spots.

Green Bay hosts the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at noon. The Packers are (1-0) heading in, while the Bills dropped their season opener last week against Miami.
