Bengals RB Benson doubtful vs. Raiders

Bengals RB Cedric Benson (hip) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Raiders.

The Bengals signed former Chiefs RB Larry Johnson earlier in the week for running back depth. Cincinnati also has three-year pro Brian Leonard and rookie Bernard Scott at the position, but Johnson, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, has much more experience.

NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora said that Johnson took a majority of the snaps Thursday, according to a league source.
