A foot injury has kept Cedric Benson from the football field in recent weeks, but nothing will keep the running back from spinning the hottest songs on the turntables. Benson has been on injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury and hasn’t played for the Green Bay Packers since Week 6. But in his time away from the field, Benson has apparently been launching a second career as a professional DJ, as is evident by his personal website www.djworldpeace.com. DJ World Peace, as Benson is known in the music scene, has spent the past month or so dropping hot tracks in and around the Austin, Texas area — a hobby that appears to have started during the offseason. There’s no indication as to how many events or where the 29-year-old Benson is spinning each week. A quick scope of his Facebook page tells us that strip clubs make up at least some of his clientele, as he performed at the Yellow Rose, a gentleman’s club in Austin on Nov. 6. That venue is of even more interest considering that his most recent post on the page, which he updated on Monday, just reads “Save the Children 2013.” Seems a bit ironic. Whether or not this is Benson’s new career choice is uncertain, but it couldn’t have come at a more opportune time as his football career could very well be over. Benson can be activated off the Packers’ injured reserved list in Week 14, but season-ending surgery may kill that dream, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, as his foot injury continues to linger. There’s no telling when, or if, Benson will be back on the football field again this season. But we can count on seeing much plenty more of him on the ones and twos, which you can catch a glimpse on the photos below. Photos via Facebook/DJWorldPeace

  • I love whores and strippers! Go Packers!!!
  • And I thought the dude was not hetero after the fight with his "roommate" last year. Jokes on me!
  • Too bad there aren't any more ones and twos, just a laptop and digital ques/scratching. Kinda sad to see a guy that had potential this year focus little on recovery.
