Grant, Jurkovic to be featured alumni this week

The Green Bay Packers are welcoming back featured alumni Ryan Grant and John Jurkovic for the Packers-Dolphins game on Sunday, Nov. 11.

Leading up to the game, the alumni will be signing autographs and visiting with fans at the Lambeau Field Atrium on Saturday, Nov. 10, from 11 a.m. to noon.

Jurkovic will be visiting with fans and signing autographs at surprise locations around Lambeau Field on gameday from 2 to 3 p.m. Grant will be visiting with fans and signing autographs during that same time in the Legends Club on the Associated Bank Club Level, an area accessible to game attendees with suite or club seat tickets, as a guest of the ‘Alumni Meet and Greet.’

Ryan Grant came to the Packers through a trade with the New York Giants in 2007. The four-year letterman out of Notre Dame caught on quickly with Green Bay, posting five 100-yard games in his first season with the Packers and surpassing 3,000 yards rushing in just 41 games, the third fastest to do so in team history. He went on to become the franchise’s fifth leading rusher, with 4,143 yards rushing over the course of his Packers career (2007-12). He topped 1,200 rushing yards in both 2008 and 2009, only the third back in team history to do so in consecutive years.

John Jurkovic came to Green Bay as a free agent in 1991. A product of Eastern Illinois, he played in five games during his first season with the Packers before going on to start in more games for Green Bay (53) than any other defensive lineman over the next four seasons. A run-stuffing defensive tackle, he played in 69 games during his five-year Green Bay career (1991-95), registering 163 tackles, including 144 solo, and returning 10 kickoffs.
