Rotoworld wrote:Head coach Lovie Smith told the Associated Press that Cedric Benson will start at running back when the Bears open training camp Thursday.
"As we go into training camp, our starting rotation will be exactly how it was as we finished OTAs," Smith said. Benson finished OTAs as Chicago's first-stringer, not Thomas Jones, who was "demoted" after skipping voluntary workouts. Smith did indicate that Jones, Benson, and Adrian Peterson would rotate during camp, meaning Jones would have to climb the depth chart to regain his starting job.
I drafted Benson in the back end of a couple drafts, glad to see this
