CBS Sports - [Full Article]

Cedric Benson's season is over, the Packers announced on Thursday afternoon. The running back had surgery on Wednesday and will remain on injured reserve for the remainder of the season.

Benson, who suffered a Lisfranc foot injury in the Week 5 loss to the Colts, had been the Packers' designated player to return as part of the league's new reserve exemption rule. He would've been eligible to play next week against the Lions, after sitting out the mandatory eight weeks.
