A torn ACL limited Benjamin to just five games last year, and while the Browns could be scrambling for receivers if Josh Gordon ends up getting suspended for all of 2014, Benjamin may not be recovered...

Benjamin (knee) is hoping to return a few kicks during Monday's preseason matchup with the Redskins, the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Benjamin, who missed most of last season with a torn ACL, has impressed the Browns' coaching staff thus far in camp. While he's hoping to expand his role outside of special teams, he'll first need to prove he's healthy enough to handle kick-return duties. Benjamin sat out last weekend's preseason opener against Detroit.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Benjamin caught a deep ball for a touchdown from quarterback Johnny Manziel during Wednesday's practice, and hauled in several more receptions during team drills. His role as a kick returner is well-established at this point, but the 24-year-old isn't content to be just a return man. He's been seeing more reps with Josh Gordon away from the practice field, and could be one of the candidates to see additional snaps after Gordon is finally handed his suspension. The report didn't name any other names, but mentioned the high frequency of balls being dropped at Wednesday's practice, effectively making Benjamin stand out even more. He's coming off a torn ACL last season and has just 23 career receptions, but has so far been praised by the new coaching staff.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Benjamin saw just 37 targets last season, but he displayed the speed and big-play ability that caused the Browns to draft him in the fourth round in 2012. With Josh Gordon and Greg Little firmly entrenched ahead of him on the depth chart, the best-case scenario for Benjamin in 2013, barring injuries, is likely as the Browns' slot receiver.

2012

The prevailing assumption heading into April's draft was Cleveland would spend a high pick on a receiver. That never materialized as the team took quarterback Brandon Weeden with their second first-round selection and subsequently addressed the offensive and defensive lines before drafting Benjamin with the 5th pick of the 4th round. Heís a mid-level prospect, but possesses a trait you cannot teach, blazing speed. He ran the second-fastest 40-time at the combine (4.36) and could be worked into the Cleveland receiver rotation in 2012 as a deep threat. Benjamin posted modest numbers of 41 catches, 609 yards, 16.4 YPC, and three touchdowns in his senior year at Miami (FL). He also served as the teamís punt and kick returner and should fill those roles for the Browns at times to spell Josh Cribbs.
