Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports that Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin was late for a team meeting on Saturday. Benjamin’s punishment didn’t extend to the field as he led the team in receiving yards during the 13-9 loss.
“I really didn’t worry about it,” Benjamin said. “When I got my chance and got in, I just wanted to make my mark and get the offense going and help the team.”
After the game, coach Ron Rivera said that Benjamin sat out those three plays to send the message that “you are accountable just like everybody else."
