Twenty-four hours later the Ced Watch has ended.
Running back Cedric Benson participated in the OTA on Tuesday at Halas Hall a day after he did not show up for Monday’s initial OTA. No word on why he wasn’t there but the workouts are voluntary and right now the only player known to be volunteering to miss the lot is middle linebacker Brian Urlacher.
Perhaps Benson will visit with media Wednesday when the workout is opened. We’ll see but he’s clammed up since talking the day after his arrest in Texas earlier this month.
Also, Rex Grossman took his turn with the first team on Tuesday. If the first two days are an indication, the quarterbacks will rotate days working with the ones. Kyle Orton was with the first team on Monday and presumably he’ll be back in that role Wednesday.
