Cedric Benson (foot, I.R. designated for return) is aiming for a Dec. 16 return for the Packers' away game against the Bears.
"Cedric had the opportunity to have some testing done (recently) and everything's positive. His rehab has picked up," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said after practice Friday. Benson hasn't put a timeline on his return, but did say that he's confident he'll return before the season is over. "I'm kind of looking and thinking the Bears game," Benson said, though the team has left the door open for a possible Week 14 return for the Packers' home tilt against the Lions.
