Bengals RB Cedric Benson will rejoin the team on a two-day roster exemption this week, the team announced Monday.

The exemption allows Benson to participate in team activities this week after he was suspended in Week Seven for violation of the personal-conduct policy without counting against the 53-man roster. The Bengals will have to make a decision by Wednesday on how to adjust the 53-man roster, which is currently full, to accommodate Benson's return.

Benson has 458 rushing yards so far this season to lead the team.
