Benjamin missed the final practice during the Chargers spring camp with an undisclosed injury, Tom Krasovic of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering nothing else has come from the Chargers in regards to the injury, it appears as if the injury is not significant. The 26-year-old joined the Chargers this offseason after a breakout 2015 campaign with the Browns, in which the speed threat tallied 68 catches, 966 yards and five touchdowns despite a rotating carousel at quarterback. He's expected to take over as the team's No. 2 receiver and will act as a deep threat for QB Philip Rivers while Keenan Allen and Stevie Johnson catch passes in the middle of the field.

Benjamin has agreed to join the Chargers, Rand Getlin of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin will head to San Diego after a breakout year in Cleveland that saw him catch 68 passes for 966 yards and score five touchdowns. He will slot in as the No. 2 receiver behind Keenan Allen and give Philip Rivers a reliable big-play wideout. Benjamin has also averaged 12.6 yards per punt return while taking three punts to the house in his career, so he figures to assume those duties for the Chargers as well.

Benjamin expects to hit the open market next month after contract talks with the Browns broke down Tuesday, Rand Getlin of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

During an appearance on radio row at Super Bowl 50, Benjamin's agent, Ronald Butler, relayed that the parties were making "strides in terms of getting him back in a Browns uniform." However, just over two weeks before free agency kicks off, Butler is singing a different tune. Time remains for the two sides to break the impasse, but Benjamin appears poised to enter a marketplace that boasts a weak crop of wide receivers.

Benjamin and Cleveland have "made strides in terms of getting him back in a Browns uniform," Benjamin's agent told Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin's agent, Ronald Butler, said that Browns coach Hue Jackson "loves Travis" and is excited about Benjamin's explosive skillset. Benjamin caught 68 balls for 966 yards and five touchdowns and is will be one of the Browns' most talented players if they can reach a deal before the March 9 roster deadline.

Benjamin (ankle) corralled 5-of-11 targets for just 53 receiving yards, and was held to no gain on a single carry against the Steelers on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin's late-season fade prevented him from reaching 1000 yards, but the fourth-year wide receiver out of Miami still eclipsed his combined receiving total from 2012-14 in 2015 alone. Having the inept Austin Davis at quarterback for the season finale certainly didn't help in Benjamin's quest to reverse his recent downward trend.

Benjamin (ankle) is active Sunday against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

After missing practice Wednesday, Benjamin returned to log limited sessions both Thursday and Friday, putting him on the right track to suit up for Sunday's divisional matchup. The last time Benjamin played Pittsburgh, he returned his third highest receiving total of the year, hauling in seven of 11 targets for 113 yards. He'll have to do it with Austin Davis at the helm this time, but considering that the two have already hooked up for a 42-yard score this season, the new quarterback situation may not drastically diminish his fantasy value. Benjamin could conceivably lead the wide receiver position group in targets, with tight end Gary Barnidge representing the only major competition for looks in the passing game.

Benjamin (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Back-to-back limited practices Thursday and Friday suggest that Benjamin should be a go Sunday, but those considering the Browns' top wideout in Week 17 lineups will want to verify his status as Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches.

Benjamin (ankle) returned to a limited practice Thursday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

More on Benjamin's status Friday, but his return to practice Thursday, albeit in a limited capacity, bodes well for the wideout's chances of being a go Sunday against the Steelers.

Benjamin (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin is among the players coach Mike Pettine hopes to get back on the field later in the week and thus have available for Sunday's season finale against the Steelers. Overall, Benjamin has caught 63 of 113 targets for a 913 yards and five TDs in 15 games, but of late he's been held to a combined 87 yards over his last three full games.

Benjamin caught two of five targets for 20 yards Sunday against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Quarterback Johnny Manziel really struggled Sunday, completing just 13 of 32 passes, which helped contribute to Benjamin extending his streak of producing fewer than 45 yards to four. It won't get much easier in Week 17, as the Browns host a Steelers team that needs a win to keep their playoff hopes alive.
