Carolina Panthers first-round draft pick WR Kelvin Benjamin jammed his middle finger and let a touchdown pass slip through his hands during Thursday night's exhibition finale at Pittsburgh.

Otherwise, the 6-foot-5, 240-pound wide receiver out of Florida State had a strong preseason and established himself as the No. 1 target the Panthers were looking for when they released Steve Smith in March.

Fantasy Impact:

The finger doesn't appear to be anything that will be an issue, and Benjamin played longer than he was scripted because he wanted more time on the field, the story said. Two of his four catches for 56 yards were in traffic over the middle. He's shaping up to be a potential later-round WR option who could surprise this year as Carolina's top target. His ADP is the 9th round in 10-team leagues.
