The Detroit Lions are clearly not satisfied with Kevin Smith and their running game, as Jason La Canfora reports that the team is working out Ryan Grant and Steve Slaton. The Lions courted Grant earlier in the offseason, but couldn't agree on a deal.
Fantasy Impact: Smith withered in the face of the 49er defense Sunday night, getting only 53 yards on 16 carries and later ceding carries to Joique Bell. His role in the offense could be further reduced next week when Mikel Leshoure comes back from suspension. Smith had a good Week 1 against the Rams, but it's hardly a ringing endorsement that the Lions are kicking the tires on has-beens like Grant and Slaton. He will probably be little more than fantasy bench fodder going forward.
