Green Bay Packers placed RB Cedric Benson on IR

The Green Packers have placed Cedric Benson on the injured reserve list with the designation to return tag on Wednesday, according to Marc Sessler of NFL.com.

NFL.com also added that Benson is eligible to return to the team by Week 14. Green Bay plays against the Detroit Lions that week.

As NFL Mocks wrote yesterday, the Packers will now have to rely on the services of Alex Green, Brandon Saine and James Starks to fill the void at tailback. Although Starks is the best option for the Pack, he is currently battling an injury. Green will likely get the nod as starter going forward.
