GREEN BAY - Mike McCarthy announced on Wednesday that RB Cedric Benson has been placed on injured reserve with the designation to possibly return this season.
Thatís a new rule in 2012, and each team gets one such IR designation. Benson must sit out a minimum of six weeks of practice and eight weeks of games before heís eligible to return.
McCarthy said the Packers were targeting Benson to possibly return from his foot sprain for the final four weeks of the season, though thatís a premature projection.
McCarthy also said regarding TE Jermichael Finley, DL B.J. Raji and WR Greg Jennings that all three would rehab their injuries this week, and the earliest any of them would return to practice would be Friday. With all three players, McCarthy said he might take it all the way up until game time to see if theyíre able to play.
