With former Chiefs running back Larry Johnson sitting next to him in a Paul Brown Stadium news conference Tuesday, head coach Marvin Lewis didn’t rule out using the newest Bengal this Sunday in Oakland if Cedric Benson can’t play.
Benson’s first game for the Bengals came the same week he signed last season and he had missed all of training camp.
“This might be a little easier situation because Ced had been sitting at home for two months and Larry has been home for only two weeks,” Lewis said. “This will be a little easier transition. I’m not going to say it can’t happen, I’m not going to say it will happen, but stay tuned. He’d like to play, I know that.”
Johnson, who was suspended for a week by the Chiefs before they cut him last week, said it is a chance "to right some of my wrongs."
