Bengals' Henry, Benson in uniform against Cowboys
IRVING, Texas -- Receiver Chris Henry was in uniform for Cincinnati's game Sunday at Dallas after serving a four-game suspension for violating the league's conduct policy.
Henry was released by the Bengals following his fifth arrest in the offseason, but was brought back to the team by owner Mike Brown over the objections of coach Marvin Lewis. The Bengals released backup running back Kenny Watson on Saturday to make room on their 53-man roster.
Also playing Sunday for the Bengals was running back Cedric Benson, signed to a one-year deal earlier this week. Benson was released by Chicago following two offseason arrests in Texas involving alcohol, but the cases were dropped when grand juries chose not to indict last week.
Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer, who missed last week with a sore passing elbow, was active.
Dallas cornerback Terence Newman was inactive after re-aggravating a groin injury that forced him to miss the entire preseason and the season opener. Patrick Watkins also was out because of lingering neck problems.
