 Bengals looking for Benson to ignite running game
posted 8 years ago

Their top runner? Chris Perry, who has only 239 yards in five games with a paltry 2.8 yards per carry. Oh, he's also fumbled five times, losing three. The next two in line? Quarterbacks. No, Carson Palmer isn't directing the wishbone in Cincinnati these days. Ryan Fitzpatrick didn't run the option during his one-game fill-in role. But there they are, ranked among the top three when it comes to carrying the ball in Cincinnati. The Bengals signed Benson as a free agent last week, after running back DeDe Dorsey suffered a season-ending hamstring injury. Benson, who had been out of football since the Bears released him in the offseason, carried 10 times for 30 yards against Dallas, making the most of his limited role in an unfamiliar offense. "It's a lot different," Benson said. "It's a totally different playbook, totally different calls, totally different run schemes. It's night and day." It could be the start of something familiar in Cincinnati. The Bengals' running game was at its best when Rudi Johnson -- a tackle-to-tackle runner -- alternated with Perry in 2005 to help Cincinnati make the playoffs. Perry is a more accomplished pass receiver and outside runner, but has been hurt most of the last two years. Johnson was released before the start of this season.More turnovers could mean less chances for Perry. "Well, we have to take care of the football," Lewis said. "I'm not going to sit here and explain how we're going to handle that situation. We want Chris to take care of the ball and do that just like everybody else that handles the football on this team is asked to do. As Cedric learns more about this offense and understands where he needs to go, his role has an opportunity to expand."
