Cedric Benson (foot, I.R./designated for return) expects to shed his walking boot by next week.

Benson says he's been unable to put any weight on the Lisfranc sprain in his left foot, but that he's "on, if not a little ahead" of schedule in his recovery. "My strength is coming back, the pain is subsiding so things are coming along good," Benson said. "It's one of those deals where you can't do much. But now, I'm at the point when I can start to do rehab." Benson can return no sooner than Week 14, so he won't be helping fantasy teams anytime soon.
