Benjamin suffered a torn ACL on Wednesday and will miss the entire 2015 season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Benjamin was carted off the field in the midst of Wednesday's practice, and following an MRI, the worst has been confirmed. With the second-year wideout out of the picture, the Panthers will trot out one of the least talented receiving corps outside of veteran tight end Greg Olsen. No matter, rookie Devin Funchess (hamstring) should receive the requisite bump up cheat sheets in advance of the season.
Benjamin, who was carted off the field Wednesday after injuring his left knee in practice, is slated to undergo an MRI, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Per the report, coach Ron Rivera indicated that preliminary indications are that Benjamin suffered a sprained knee during a one-on-one drill Wednesday. Benjamin, who is coming off a rookie campaign in which he notched 73 receptions for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns, is thus slated to miss some time, though at this stage it's too early to accurately predict whether the 24-year-old wideout's Week 1 status is in danger.
Benjamin was carted off the field with an apparent left knee injury during Wednesday's practice, Jeff Zell of WCCB Sports reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The injury was suffered when Benjamin went to plant his left foot while cutting back during a route, causing him to immediately fall to the ground in pain clutching his left knee. Being that it was a non-contact injury, the initial signs don't look good out of Carolina as Benjamin may have to miss a portion of the 2015-16 season. Although still not official, Devin Funchess, Philly Brown, and Jerricho Cotchery are in line to move up the depth chart.
Benjamin (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday, the Panthers' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Benjamin took a couple days off after dealing with some soreness in the wake of Carolina's first preseason game. He caught three passes for 36 yards and a touchdown in the contest, suggesting that his hamstring is no longer a major concern. Benjamin is locked in as Carolina's No. 1 wide receiver, with the team likely to use a rotation behind him.

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.
