Browns WR Travis Benjamin (ankle, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 17. This is a new injury for Benjamin, who seems legitimately questionable for Week 17. The Browns play early on Sunday.

Scouting Report

Week 17 vs Pittsburgh

Since catching six passes for 90 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against Baltimore, Travis Benjamin has been lethally silent, with nine receptions for 87 yards since the clash with the Ravens. In defense of Benjamin, he left the Week 13 tilt with Cincinnati early due to injury, but increased defensive attention and rough matchups have caused a bright surprise to dwindle into a disappointment.

However, in a week where it can be tough to find reliable options, Benjamin has a reasonably favorable matchup with a Pittsburgh secondary that somehow got picked apart by Ryan Mallett last week. He also hauled in seven passes for 111 yards against the Steelers earlier in the season. The risks are high, but Travis can be used as a WR3 if your situation dictates it.
