Despite playing every game and a majority of the team's practices this year, Cincinnati Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis admitted that he's been playing with a broken thumb while dealing with an ankle injury dating back to the second weekend of the season.
Despite splitting carries with rookie running back Giovani Bernard, Green-Ellis has had a rough season.
He's currently ranked 21st with 460 yards rushing on 140 carries -- 11 players have more rushing yards on less carries. If he finishes with his current 3.3 yard/rush average, it'll be the lowest in his career. At this pace, he'll score five rushing touchdowns; his worst since 2009.
Since joining the Bengals in 2012, Green-Ellis has played three games against the Cleveland Browns and generated 150 yards rushing on 45 carries for a 3.3 yard/rush average.
