Benjamin recorded one catch for 11 yards, as well as one carry for negative five yards in his preseason debut against on the Cardinals on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

An offseason addition by way of the Browns, Benjamin has played sparingly during training camp thanks to a nagging hamstring injury. While he didn't factor in much on offense Friday, the 26-year-old still figures to bring a dynamic element to a passing attack that also features Keenan Allen and the seemingly immortal Antonio Gates. Now firmly entrenched as the No. 2 starting WR with Stevie Johnson (knee) done for the season, Benjamin could improve upon his 2015 numbers (68 catches, 966 yards and five touchdowns) in an explosive passing attack that has seen QB Philip Rivers record three straight seasons in which he has thrown for over 4,000 yards.

Benjamin (hamstring) took part in his second straight practice Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin looks to be healthy after missing the majority of the team's practices since the start of training camp with an ailing hamstring. While it's unclear whether Benjamin will see time in the slot, or on the outside opposite Keenan Allen, the 26-year-old is expected to be a featured part of the offense with Stevie Johnson (knee) lost for the season.

Benjamin (undisclosed) won't suit up for Saturday's preseason contest at Tennessee, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin has been sidelined for most practices since the final day of OTAs due to an unknown ailment, but because the NFL doesn't required teams to release injury details, the exact nature of his issue remains up in the air. Once he's past the concern, he can begin to build a rapport with quarterback Philip Rivers.

Benjamin (undisclosed) is sitting out his fifth straight practice Thursday, Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Chargers continue to play it safe with their No. 2 wide receiver, who's sat out of the majority of training camp thus far. It's unclear what's ailing Benjamin at this point, but it doesn't appear to be anything that could put his Week 1 status in danger.

Benjamin (undisclosed) sat out a fourth straight practice Wednesday, Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin missed the final practice of the Chargers' spring camp back at the start of July and continues to be sidelined, although it's unclear exactly what the cause is of his absence. Projected to be the Chargers' No. 2 receiver behind Keenan Allen, Benjamin isn't expected to miss any regular season action, so he's likely just being held out for precautionary reasons.

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.
