New Packers RB Benson: 'Plenty' Left In the Tank

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Cedric Benson knows there's an expiration date stamped on any NFL player and that it seems to come up more quickly for running backs.
Despite carrying the ball more than 1,500 times over the past seven NFL seasons, Benson insisted Monday he has a lot left to give the Green Bay Packers.
The Packers signed the free agent running back Sunday, hoping to add depth and productivity at a position that is being stretched thin by injuries.
Green Bay is missing James Starks because of a turf toe injury. And the Packers don't want to overtax second-year player Alex Green in his return from a season-ending knee injury. And their problems compounded when they lost John Kuhn to an ankle sprain during Monday's practice.
