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

Benjamin missed Wednesday's minicamp practice due to a right hamstring strain, the Associated Press reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Previously, Benjamin was afflicted by left hamstring issues during OTAs, missing a handful of practices. The recurring hamstring injuries are something to keep in mind when preparing for upcoming drafts, but the receiver expects to be healthy when training camp kicks off in late July. No matter, his status as Cam Newton's primary receiving threat outside of Greg Olsen sustains Benjamin's value, as he prepares for his sophomore season.
Benjamin (hamstring) returned to practice on Thursday, David Newton of ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Benjamin had been nursing a hamstring injury since the start of OTAs, and while his return is encouraging, it is likely the Panthers limit their star wide receiver's workload as a precautionary measure. Nevertheless, assuming Benjamin enters the season healthy, he will be looking to build on a very promising rookie campaign.
Benjamin (hamstring) is expected to return to practice this week, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Benjamin (hamstring) has yet to return to OTA's, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Benjamin continues to nurse a hamstring injury, and it's now carrying over to the second week of offseason workouts. The team does not believe it's anything that will impact him long-term, however, and he's likely be held out as a precaution more than anything else.
Benjamin (hamstring) did not participate in Thursday's OTA session.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Benjamin continues to work through a hamstring injury suffered a few weeks ago during an offseason workout. The team has not provided a return timetable, but the injury is not considered to be be overly serious and should not impact his availability for training camp or the start of the 2015 season.
Benjamin finished his rookie season with 73 receptions (on 146 targets) for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns in 16 games played.

2015

2014

If any team needed to draft a receiver in the first round, it was the Panthers. With Steve Smith and Brandon LaFell gone, Carolina had 31-year old placeholders Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant atop the depth chart, but two veteran possession threats were not going to cut it on what’s presumably a contending team. Enter the 6-5, 241-pound Benjamin with the 28th overall pick. He may be on the slow side for a true No. 1 (4.6 40), and his hands and focus were questionable at times in college. But he’s a good athlete and a massive target with a huge catch radius. As long as he doesn’t underwhelm in camp, Benjamin should start out of the gate and be a frequent red-zone target.
