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.
