Packers RB Performing As DJ At Strip Club While On Injured Reserve
AUSTIN, Texas (CBS Houston/AP) — A Green Bay Packers running back has taken up a second job as a DJ, sometimes performing at a strip club, while on injured reserve.
According to Deadspin, Cedric Benson, who goes by DJ World Peace, performed at Austin strip club Yellow Rose earlier this month.
“Everything is clear to me! The world is full of energy! I’m making my way to be apart (sic) of history! So let’s all get together and dance the night away!!” Benson wrote on his Facebook page.
Benson has also performed at The Madison nightclub.
Benson suffered a Lisfranc foot injury during an Oct. 7 game against the Indianapolis Colts. He was placed on injured reserve with a designation to return.
Benson, who was put on IR three days after the injury, was scheduled to visit a specialist in Charlotte, N.C., and after initially ruling out surgery, that possibility was reportedly still being considered last week. Benson is currently eligible to return to practice and under league rules could play Dec. 9 against Detroit.
But Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Benson would not practice this week.
When asked if he thought the Packers would get Benson back this season, McCarthy replied, “We’ll probably have some information for you tomorrow on Cedric Benson.”
