Turner said Benson will play by the second or third series Sunday. "He needs to be in more," Turner said. "Thomas [Jones] is a very good player and we're going to get Thomas his carries, but we believe Cedric is, too, and we've got to get him in. We need to get Cedric going and get him in early and give him the ball. If it's a tight game, or whatever kind of game it is, he needs to be in there and he will be in there." Benson has been waiting for an opportunity to prove himself, and a good performance this week could lead to his seeing more carries in the near future.
