Cincinnati Bengals running back Cedric Peerman had missed the last two games with a bum ankle that he suffered against the Chargers earlier this month. He's back!
At least the Cincinnati Bengals withstood the storm of missing Cedric Peerman, as if the entire offense would collapse without a backup running back. That's fine. BenJarvus Green-Ellis just nods, arms folded with a strut that makes John Travolta envious.
Earlier this month Cedric Peerman suffered an ankle injury, forcing the Bengals to use Brian Leonard as a backup and calling Daniel Herron from the practice squad. For the most part nothing really changed. Green-Ellis pounded massive gains, set personal records and helped a Bengals rushing offense generate over 300 yards in the last two games.
On Wednesday Peerman returned to practice, heading into a critical meeting against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Win and they're in. Prior to suffering an ankle injury against the San Diego Chargers, Peerman had generated back-to-back career games, combing for 135 yards (including two runs of 30 yards or more) against the Chiefs and Raiders.
