Happy Monday, ladies and gentlemen. Cedric Benson is now officially a member of the Packers, while all of our players with concussions are out for the immediate future. It's a mixed back news day. I'm glad we're not rushing back the likes of Greg Jennings and Marshall Newhouse, though. It's just preseason and concussions are serious business. You can find that and more in your daily dose of Green Bay Packers news and links.
