Green Bay Packers RB Cedric Benson (foot) has already been ruled out for Week 6 against the Houston Texans, reports Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Benson left Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts with a foot sprain, and was later spotted in a walking boot. He has 248 rushing yards and just one TD on the season.
Fantasy Impact: With Benson out, the Packers will probably turn back to a running-back-by-committee. Alex Green will be the likely starter, with James Starks expected to be activated after being a healthy scratch recently. Benson is hardly an inspiring fantasy play, and his injury makes Green Bay's running game even more unappealing. Nobody in the backfield is a fantasy option against the Texans.
