    Default Bungles' Benson will serve 20 days in jail

    Cedric Benson will serve 20 days in jail
    August, 29, 2011
    By James Walker

    Cincinnati Bengals starting running back Cedric Benson was sentenced to 20 days in jail for a prior assault charge in 2010, according to the Austin-American Statesman. Benson will serve the sentence in Texas during the bye week on Oct. 17. He could be out for good behavior before Cincinnati's next game against the Seattle Seahawks on Oct. 30.

    Chances are, this won't lead to a suspension. This is an old case that Benson already discussed with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Benson was not suspended by Goodell last season.

    Benson also cleared a second assault charge from earlier this summer involving a former roommate. Benson was ordered 30 hours of community service and agreed to pay the victim $5,000.

    The second case is more on the NFL's radar. But the league hasn't done much with recent off-field transgressions since the lockout was lifted.

    What a coinici-dinky! Less than the actual sentence for "good behaviour" and that happens in the bye week...

    No suspension. Ah well, we know where we stand now (well, we did before, but this does give me some reassurance that my paranoia might not be unfounded).

    There are a few things in the League's off-field disciplinary records right now that make me a little tetchy. This is one.

    It might allow Benson some time to write Carson Palmer and plead for him to return to such a fine team and organization.
