Cedric Benson says his foot injury isn’t serious

Packers running back Cedric Benson left Sunday’s loss to the Colts early with a foot injury, but he doesn’t believe it’s serious.

Benson was wearing a protective boot on his left foot after the game and said he will have more tests on it on Monday, but he also said X-rays did not show any broken bones, and he’s confident he doesn’t have the dreaded lisfranc injury, which could end a running back’s season.

I was able to walk on it,” Benson told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “Guys who have had [the lisfranc injury] usually can’t.”

With Benson out, the Packers turned to backup running back Alex Green, who had nine carries for 55 yards against the Colts.

    Whatever happened to James Starks? He looked like a cold beast during the packers superbowl year and hasn’t seen many carries since. Ryan Grant and now Cedric Benson have been used instead of starks. I realize he’s had some turf toe this year but was james starks just a flash in the pan ?

    I haven’t paid a ton of attention to the Packers…..

    But how in the hell did a team with Super Bowl aspirations end up with Cedric Benson as their starting tailback?

    Benson runs like he has a load in his pants.

    Yeah Alex Green had like 60 yards on two carries, and negative yards on each of the other 7.

    Yeah Ced….its not a serious injury. But you f’in with my fantasy lineup is! If it aint that serious your punk ass shouldve been back out there.

    Right now, Packers don’t seem as hungry as last few years. In 2010-2011, Rodgers’ chillax style belied a focused perfectionist assassin. In 2012, he strikes me as a little bored with it all. His demeanor lately is that of one playing out the regular season to get to the Playoffs. This ain’t the NBA. These games count, sport.

    If the Packers lose at Houston, at Detroit, and at the Giants (as they should), they’ll be 5-6 heading into a 3-game stretch against division foes who would love to finish them off. That’s assuming they can somehow get by the Rams on the road and the Cards at home – no sure thing.

    This year’s team is toast.
