Packers RB Cedric Benson In Line For A Week 1 Start?

Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel writes that Cedric Benson will probably be the Packers’ starting running back for their Week 1 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.

Reports from earlier in the day suggested that James Starks will likely miss a few more weeks with a turf toe injury and Alex Green hasn’t done enough to secure the position. Green Bay’s coaching staff was apparently impressed with Benson’s performance in practice, so he seems like their best option at this point in time.
