It will be interesting to see how Bengals coach Marvin Lewis divides up carries in his backfield when Cedric Benson, Bernard Scott, and Larry Johnson are all healthy at the same.
That’s just not likely to happen this week.
Scott was still is on crutches and in a walking boot Wednesday because of a toe injury.
“I think I can play, but I don’t think they’re going to let me play,”
Benson returned to practice and his injured hip doesn’t appear to be a problem.
“It feels real good and long awaited. I was hoping to get out there last week but that wasn’t the plan,” Benson said.
Scott’s injury highlights why Larry Johnson’s signing was ultimately a good move. The Bengals are a run-heavy team, and they have ensured enough healthy legs to get the team to January.
