Cedric Benson Misses Thursday Practice

Via the Bengals official Twitter feed comes news that running back Cedric Benson did not participate in practice on Thursday. Benson left last week’s game against the Steelers with a hip injury, and had sounded confident about his prospects of playing this weekend immediately afterwards.

The fact that the Bengals signed former Chief Larry Johnson seemed to indicate that the team was less sanguine about Benson returning so quickly. The Bengals also might figure that they can afford to rest Benson this week when they take on the woeful Raiders, allowing Benson to get closer to full strength.
