Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin returned to practice Saturday after missing five days with a bone bruise in his left knee.
Benjamin, the team's first-round draft pick, eased back into practice Saturday at Wofford College. He wore a compression sleeve on his left leg but didn't appear to have any trouble moving and running routes.
Great news for the Panthers. Benjamin is poised to play a key role this season in the passing game with really not a lot of great options outside of maybe Greg Olsen at TE. Benjamin was missing key practice time, so it remains to be seen how quickly he can get back to full steam.
