Bengals RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis Sits During Practice With Illness

Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis, who prior to being stoned by the Pittsburgh Steelers for a season-low 14 yards rushing, was setting an impressive pace of 100-yard games that nearly reset franchise records, sat during Thursday's practice with an illness.

There's no reason for Green-Ellis not to go, but if the team decides to rest their starting running back on Sunday (and I don't believe for a minute that the starters will play the entire game), Cedric Peerman would likely start.
