Bills wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin was hit on the right knee on a run after the catch in the first quarter Sunday. He left the game and it was announced quickly that he would not return.
The story said, by video, the injury appeared to be a hyperextension. There was, however, only one angle. The best-case scenario is a hyperextension sprain and possible bone bruise with ligaments spared. The worst-case is an ACL and/or MCL injury. Earlier this year, Benjamin had an ugly hyperflexion injury on his right knee and ended up playing the next week, the story all said.

Week 11 at Los Angeles Chargers
The new wide receiver will get a new quarterback. Kelvin Benjamin saw his first action as a Bill last week and was targeted 6 times, which produced 3 receptions for 42 yards. Now, he will have rookie QB Nathan Peterman throwing to him. There is no doubt Buffalo wants Benjamin to be involved in the offense, but with all the new pieces to the puzzle, it might take some time.
The Bills face the Los Angeles Chargers, who are ranked 18th in aFPA to wide receivers. Benjamin will have a breakthrough game one of these weeks, but it's a question of when. Start Benjamin this week as a low-end WR3 or flex and hope that it all clicks for the Bills' passing game.
