Cedric Peerman RB CIN 12 Months
Bengals re-signed RB Cedric Peerman to a two-year contract.
Peerman, 26, added juice to Cincy's 2012 backfield with 258 yards and a score on 36 carries (7.2 YPC). He deserved more work considering BenJarvus Green-Ellis' utter lack of big-play ability. Peerman has burst and some versatility, but the Bengals don't seem to value him as more than a third-stringer and special teamer. They're expected to draft a change-of-pace back upgrade in April.

Cedric Peerman did not touch the ball in the Bengals' Wild Card Round loss to the Texans.
We don't know why Peerman wasn't involved; he averaged over seven yards a carry in the regular season and provided an explosive change-of-pace complement to BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Peerman can also hold his own in the passing game. We are mildly intrigued to see where he lands in 2013 free agency.

Cedric Peerman (ankle) is questionable for Week 16 after getting in a week of limited practices.
Peerman should be ready to return from his two-game absence, but with BenJarvus Green-Ellis playing the finest football of his career, he's doubtful to receive more than 4-5 touches.

Cedric Peerman (ankle) returned to Bengals practice Wednesday, getting in a limited session.
It's a sign Peerman should be good to go against the Steelers after missing the Bengals' past two games. However, with BenJarvus Green-Ellis continuing to run unexpectedly well, Peerman won't be in for more than a handful of touches.

Bengals declared RB Cedric Peerman, K Mike Nugent, CB Dre Kirkpatrick, S George Iloka, DTs Devon Still and Brandon Thompson, and TE Richard Quinn inactive for Thursday night's game versus the Eagles.
Peerman has an ankle injury, so BenJarvus Green-Ellis will carry a full load in the backfield with Brian Leonard mixing in on third downs. Nugent is out with a calf injury to his kicking leg, and Josh Brown will kick for the second straight week. As reported earlier, RE Michael Johnson (toe) is active.

Cedric Peerman (ankle) did not practice on Monday.
The Bengals likely just had a walk-through on Monday after playing yesterday, but on a short week, it seems unlikely that Peerman will be back for this Thursday's tilt with the Eagles. BenJarvus Green-Ellis will carry a full load with Brian Leonard spelling him on third downs.
