Packers RB Benson has surgery, will not return in 2012

The Packers placed RB Cedric Benson on the injured reserve list with the designation to return. Benson can return to practice in six weeks and games in eight weeks.

The Packers’ starting running back suffered a foot injury in Sunday’s loss to the Colts.

In five games this season, Benson has 71 carries for 248 yards and one touchdown, and 14 catches for 97 yards. RBs Alex Green and James Starks will carry the load while Benson is out.
