Watson is also hurt so it sounds like Benson will be Perrys back up for now.

Bengals sign Benson

With running back DeDe Dorsey out for year, the Bengals turned to a star-crossed former first-round pick in Cedric Benson to back up Chris Perry Sunday in Dallas.

Benson joins the Bengals five days after two Travis County grand juries declined to indict him on charges of boating while intoxicated, resisting arrest and driving while intoxicated. in two spring-time incidents that spurred his release from the Bears.

Dorsey went to season-ending injured reserve with a hamstring injury while Perry's other backup also nurses a hamstring problem. Kenny Watson, inactive last Sunday, appears to at least be questionable for the Cowboys, leaving only Perry and fullbacks Daniel Coats and Reagn Maui'a as healthy in the backfield.

The 5-11, 220-pound Benson played in 35 games with 12 starts for the Bears from 2005-07 after they took him with the fourth pick. He rushed for 1,593 yards on 420 carries for a 3.8 yards-per-carry average with 10 touchdowns. He also had 26 catches for 180 yards.

Despite missing the last five games with an ankle injury last season, he posted career highs with 674 yards, 17 catches, and 123 receiving yards.

He had a good game and his team still lost by 18.

Please....Rudi could not get much done with a decent OL last year.....this OL is bad and to expect someone who needs big holes to do anything is not realistic.

Plenty of dumb moves that the bengals do but cutting Rudi was not one of them. O'Neal the CB was one....but i doubt he wanted to play here anymore anyways.
