Packers RB Cedric Benson Says His Return Is 'A Couple Weeks Away'
Cedric Benson hopes to return to game action Dec. 16. That's when the Green Bay Packers face his former team -- the Chicago Bears.
"I think we're still a little bit out from practicing, from putting on a cleat and pounding on it like that," Benson told ESPN Milwaukee. "I think we're still a couple of weeks away from that, but very close, very close.
"Kind of the way the doctor puts it to me all the time is regardless of anything, whether you could play tomorrow, you've still got three weeks where you can't play."
Benson was placed on injured reserve with a Lisfranc foot sprain suffered against the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 7. Rules state he can return to practice after six weeks and to games after eight. He can practice next week and play on Dec. 9 against the Detroit Lions.
"I'm very confident about saying I'll be back before the season's over," Benson said. "I think if I come back early, if I try to rush it, it can really affect me. So I think it's in my best interest as the team's as well and my contribution to the team to come back when it's ready to come back."

i was beginning to wonder if we would see him return at all this season ..............
now the question becomes, "will he be back to full health anytime this season or is he coming back still somewhat dinged up?"
