GREEN BAY, Wis. Green Bay Packers running back Cedric Benson will remain on injured reserve for the rest of this season after undergoing surgery Wednesday. Benson initially was placed on Green Bay's injured reserve Oct. 10 after a Lisfranc foot injury, but the team designated him for return under the NFL's new rule. Under this rule, Benson had to sit out six weeks of practice, a period of time which ended this week. With Benson not healing as expected, however, he had a follow-up appointment this week that determined surgery was necessary. The Packers signed Benson on Aug. 12, and the 29-year-old veteran immediately took over the starting running back role. In five regular-season starts, Benson accumulated 248 rushing yards on 71 attempts (3.5 yards per carry on average). Benson will be a free agent after the season. Follow Paul Imig on Twitter
