Bengals HC Marvin Lewis on BenJarvus Green-Ellis's role with the team:
“I can’t tell you if it’s 1A or 1B, but he would be along with Bernard Scott, and whoever else we get would have an opportunity to play and go forward. So, that’s an opportunity (to be a primary ball-carrier) that we talked to him about. I feel like you’re going to have to share the pounding of the NFL with at least one other player.”
Lewis previously described Green-Ellis as a "three-down player" but at this point it appears that he will split carries with Scott.
