CINCINNATI - Cincinnati Bengals running back Corey Dillon was involved in a minor car accident en route to Paul Brown Stadium Sunday and is inactive for the game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Dillon was not hurt in the accident, but his delayed arrival caused the team to make him inactive.

Rudi Johnson, who has 125 yards on 38 carries this season, started for Dillon.

Cincinnati's all-time leading rusher, Dillon had been limited for the past month by a strained groin. He has rushed for 203 yards and two touchdowns on 62 carries this season.

Dillon angered management when he asked for a trade earlier this month.

A three-time Pro Bowler, Dillon has rushed for more than 1,000 yards in each of his first six seasons with the Bengals. He rushed for 1,311 yards last year.
