Cedric Benson's hip could land L.J. in stripes

Free-agent running back Larry Johnson has previously worn orange on a few occasions.  He could soon be wearing it for a living.

With rumors linking Johnson to the Bengals already growing, the absence of starter Cedric Benson from Sunday’s game at Pittsburgh due to a hip injury could prompt the team to get Johnson in the building sooner rather than later.

The thinking is that Johnson is, for now, taking a wait-and-see approach.  To date, no big-name running back with a contending team has suffered a season-ending injury.

Unless we’re missing someone.  We figure you’ll let us know if we are.

    could be philly, though. we like guys like him, and westbrook is probably gonna be injured again soon enough and not playing. we need a 3rd rb, why not him…we could use a power back that isnt leonard weaver

    Benson got hurt? Will he be back in the game?

    no chance the eagles bring in LJ. They do that and the reputation for bringing in bad guys grows. They dont want turn into the Bengals of the last few years.

    I’m not watching the game, but CBS Gametracker shows a C.Benson with 7 rushes for 22 yards. No mention of injury. What gives?

    He was pronounced possibly out for the game at the end of the first, then came back in and at the end of the second the bengals confirmed he would not be back in.

    Benson went out pretty early, but Scott and Leonard picked up the slack for him. after the injury Benson did come back in for a play or two but he was running a little less intense. he was obviously pissed off when he wasn’t allowed to stay in the game so that tells me it isn’t that serious. he will be ok. by the way…where are the loud mouth Steelers fans that talked all that trash all week. WHO DEY!!!!

    I’d rather see RB by Committee between Scott and Leonard than LJ, garbage.
