Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) should be back soon

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Panthers rookie receiver Kelvin Benjamin was able to smile after his first NFL injury scare, saying he felt like “a new man” after a precautionary MRI revealed only a bone bruise.

Benjamin’s MRI revealed no structural damage, and the indication that his absence will be measured in days rather than weeks.

Fantasy Impact: 

Benjamin figures to play right away for the Panthers even though he’s something of a project as a route runner. At 6’5”, he should be a factor in the red zone at least. It's not good that he's missing valuable practice reps, but the Panthers are probably happy they avoided a more serious injury.
