Packers RB Cedric Benson will continue to be 'workhorse'
James Starks is getting closer and closer to making his 2012 debut after missing a lot of time due to turf toe. Alex Green has gotten two carries in four games. Even when both of those players are healthy and able to contribute, it sounds like Cedric Benson is entrenched as the Packers' man in the backfield.
"He's a workhorse and when he touches the ball, the more he touches it, the better he gets," offensive coordinator Tom Clemens said Monday about Benson. "We'd like to work those other guys in there if the opportunity presents itself but you try to get [Benson] the ball to get him going."
It's just nice to hear how committed the Packers are to Benson. He has surpassed 20 touches and 10 fantasy points in each of the past three weeks. With upcoming games against the Colts, Rams and Jaguars in the next four weeks, Benson is a solid RB2.
