Benson hit with three-game suspension

Cincinnati Bengals running back Cedric Benson has been suspended for three games, according to a tweet from Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports.

Benson has plans to appeal the suspension, which apparently stems from the personal conduct policy during the lockout.

Benson spent time in jail in Texas on an assault charge between the end of preseason and the start of the regular season. According to the report, he will play this weekend against the San Francisco 49ers as the case makes its way through the appeals process.
