Marvin Lewis: Benson Will Start In Week 13

Cincinnati head coach Marvin Lewis says running back Cedric Benson will be back in the starting lineup for the Bengals when they host the Detroit Lions in Week 13, according to the team’s official Twitter feed.

Benson has sat out the last two weeks due to a hip injury. With backup Bernard Scott likely limited or out the next few weeks with mild turf toe, Benson and recently acquired Larry Johnson — who went off for over 100 yards last week — figure to carry the load from the Bengals from here on out.
