Kelvin Benjamin: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Benjamin (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Packers boast one of the league's top passing defenses statistically, but starting cornerback Sam Shields (knee) will not play, which should help Benjamin and the Panthers' passing attack. Feel free to roll with Benjamin this week.

According to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer, "all signs" point to Benjamin (concussion) playing Sunday against the Packers.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Although officially questionable, Benjamin made the trip to Green Bay, indicating he checked out OK in his visit to an independent neurologist. However, Benjamin's owners will want to confirm his status prior to the team's 1:00 ET kickoff. Benjamin has seen at least eight targets in all six games this season, and he now draws a Packers team that will be without Sam Shields (knee) and perhaps Tramon Williams (ankle) as well.
Benjamin (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Green Bay, the Panthers' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Benjamin (concussion) did not practice Thursday, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Benjamin suffered what coach Ron Rivera described as a "mild concussion" this past Sunday, with his Week 7 status now clouded by consecutive missed practices, as he works through the league's concussion protocol. More on the status of the rookie wideout -- who the Charlotte Observer notes also suffered a concussion last November while he was with Florida State -- no later than Friday, when the Panthers release their official injury report in advance of Sunday's game.
Benjamin did not practice Wednesday due to a mild concussion.

Benjamin (undisclosed) wasn't in attendance at the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

During Sunday's tie in Cincinnati, Benjamin sustained a hit by linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who was quite the menace but suffered a concussion himself. The nature of Benjamin's potential absence is unknown, but an injury is the likely culprit. As the week rolls on, his status will be of interest, as he's quickly established himself as Cam Newton's preferred target in the passing game. In fact, through the first six games of his career, Benjamin has earned at least eight looks per game, while reaching the end zone on four occasions.
