Bengals Running Back Cedric Benson Suspended One Game

According to Cedric Benson's attorney, the Bengals feature running back will face a one-game suspension, plus a fine. Originally the league suspended Benson three games, but he appealed the decision. A decision wasn't known for some time due to Benson filing an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board. According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, that charge is still pending:

"Obviously Mr. Anderson (Executive Vice President of Football Operations Ray Anderson) thought that was separate in regards to the discipline," said Cornwell about the NLRB charge still being pending.

Benson will likely miss Cincinnati's next game against the Seattle Seahawks in two weeks with a bye week coming this Sunday. That would leave Brian Leonard, Bernard Scott and Cedric Peerman as potential starters. Remember back in 2009 when Scott posted his lone 100-yard game, he wasn't actually the running back that started the game against the Oakland Raiders (wow) -- Brian Leonard was.

Oh. And Mike Brown finally traded Carson Palmer on Tuesday.
