It didn't look too bad when he hurt it, but apparently Cedric Benson has a Lisfranc injury and is out for at least eight weeks, possibly the rest of the year. Honestly, this doesn't really hurt the Packers at all. Benson isn't very good, and he has a 0% DVOA right now for a team where opponents never stack the box. But it sure does have fantasy football impact... especially for the Football Outsiders team in the crazy 32-team expert league, where I drafted James Starks two days before the Packers signed Benson.

After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
