Arrelious Benn WR PHI 3 Days

Benn (head) is expected to practice Monday, The Philadelphia Enquirer reports.

Benn suffered a concussion during last Thursday's preseason game and has since gone through the necessary protocol to be cleared to return to action. At the moment, Benn is competing for the Eagles' fifth or sixth receiving position.

Benn will not return to Thursday's exhibition game due to a head injury, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

It's unclear exactly when Benn sustained the injury, but any time the words "head injury" are tossed around, the player's status for the following week is immediately clouded. Look for the Eagles to update his status later in the week.

Benn started Friday's preseason game against the Patriots, Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal reports.

The starting designation doesn't mean much in this case, as Benn is likely just hoping to win a spot on the final roster. With Jeremy Maclin (hamstring) and Riley Cooper (foot) sidelined, the Eagles have opted not to start rookies Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff (shoulder), instead going with guys like Benn, Brad Smith and Ifeanyi Momah, all of whom are long shots to emerge as fantasy options this season. Benn caught a pass for six yards on his only target in Friday's game.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Eagles WR Arrelious Benn has experienced "no issues" with his surgically-repaired left knee.

Benn tore his ACL last August, and spent the year on injured reserve. He was waived May 16 before being re-signed to a smaller salary three days later. Although still only 26 (in September), Benn is a long-shot to crack the Eagles' 53-man roster.

Eagles re-signed WR Arrelious Benn.

Benn is coming off an ACL tear and was previously scheduled to make $1.1 million. So the Eagles cut him and then bring him back three days later -- likely on a minimum contract. Injury-plagued and unproductive throughout his career, Benn is an extremely poor bet to make an impact on the Eagles' receiving corps this season.

Eagles placed WR Arrelious Benn on injured reserve with a torn left ACL, ending his season.

Benn is now tasked with returning from his second torn left ACL in four years. Although he's still only 25, it could be a career-killing injury for the former Buc. The No. 39 overall pick of the 2010 draft, Benn has just 59 catches in 37 career games. He's currently under contract with the Eagles for 2014, but it's highly doubtful he'll be back.

Coach Chip Kelly said he was "pleasantly surprised" by how Arrelious Benn (knee) looked in his first practice Sunday.

Benn is trying to shed an injury-prone label, make the Eagles' roster and help fill Jeremy Maclin's shoes all at once. He's a name to watch because he's more talented than Riley Cooper or Jason Avant, and has far greater size ((6'2/220) than Damaris Johnson. Benn started off with the third team on Sunday, behind the likes of rookies Ifeanyi Momah and rookie Russell Shepard.

Eagles WR Arrelious Benn (knee) has resumed practicing in training camp.

He'd been sidelined since July 26 with a hyperextended knee. Benn is working with the third- and fourth-team offenses. He could earn an opportunity to replace Jeremy Maclin with a big preseason, but that currently looks like a long shot.
