Morning roundup: Dreaded Lisfranc injury shuts down Benson

Oct. 9, 2012
 

The news on the injury front wasn't good for the Packers on Monday.

Running back Cedric Benson is expected to miss eight weeks with a Lisfranc foot injury suffered in Sunday's game against Indianapolis.

The news was a blow to a Packers offense that has struggled to find consistency and rhythm. With Benson out, the Packers will be forced to rely on second-year back Alex Green along with James Starks, who is coming off a turf toe injury.
