NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Tuesday that no decision on Benson's appeal of a three-game suspension will be handed down, and there is no timetable for a decision.

Benson was in New York on Tuesday to appeal his suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Benson was arrested in the offseason, during a league-imposed lockout, on assault charges.

The Bengals' running back was on a list of eight players who the NFL Players Association agreed were eligible for suspension based on conduct during the lockout.

Meanwhile, the Bengals auditioned running backs Clinton Portis and Larry Johnson on Tuesday as contingency plans for a prolonged absence from Benson.
