Bengals RB Cedric Benson has hired attorney David Cornwell, who also represented Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger.

Cornwell: "Though we adamantly dispute Cedric committed a crime, Cedric will continue to cooperate with law enforcement, Bengals and NFL."

Fantasy Impact: 

It seems entirely possible that Benson could be facing some sort of suspension given his previous off-field issues. If Benson misses significant game action, Bernard Scott would likely not be asked to carry the full load -- although he has looked good when given the chance. Expect the Bengals to begin making calls to free agents. Brian Westbrook is available, and the Bills are reportedly willing to part with Marshawn Lynch for a 4th-round pick.
