Arrelious Benn WR PHI 2 Months

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.

New Eagles WR Arrelious Benn knows he's had a "problem with injuries," and acknowledges he's "got to stay healthy" in 2013.

"I'll be honest with you, I don't like my career" to this point," Benn said. "I got to stay healthy. I haven't stayed healthy. ... And when I was healthy and out there, I made plays, and I was consistent." Benn missed 11 of a possible 48 games with the Bucs, and was rarely 100 percent. He needs to show something in Eagles camp.

Eagles signed WR Arrelious Benn to a one-year contract extension through 2014.

Benn and a 2013 seventh-round pick were acquired from the Bucs in exchange for a 2013 sixth-round pick and a 2014 conditional pick last week. The 24-year-old is signed for just $630,000 in 2013, and he's likely just getting a bump up to the five-year veteran's minimum for 2014. Benn will compete for a roster spot this summer.
