Travis Benjamin WR CLE 21 Hrs

Benjamin (ribs) was present at practice Wednesday, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Benjamin left Monday night's preseason game with a ribs injury, but as expected, the ailment's minor nature allowed the wideout to practice as usual Tuesday. Given his normal involvement, Benjamin should be good to go for Saturday's third preseason game and moving forward into the regular season.

The rib injury Benjamin suffered Monday does not appear serious, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal.

Head coach Mike Pettine said he thinks Benjamin is "OK," so it does not appear he is facing a long-term absence. However, it remains to be seen how the injury will affect Benjamin's status moving forward.

Updating a previous report, Benjamin has passed all concussion tests, but will sit for the remainder of Monday's game with a rib injury.

Benjamin will sit the rest of the exhibition game as a precaution, but he appears to have avoided a head injury that would have kept him out of action for at least a week. The Browns have a quick turnaround and will already play again Saturday, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Benjamin given the preseason game off to rest.

Benjamin left Monday's game to be evaluated for a concussion.

It's currently unclear when Benjamin suffered the hit, but he'll be evaluated on the sidelines to see if a concussion was sustained. If he's diagnosed with a concussion, he'll likely sit in the Browns penultimate exhibition contest set for Saturday against the Rams. The timing is poor for Benjamin, who had gradually been seeing his role in the Cleveland offense grow.

Benjamin (knee) is hoping to return a few kicks during Monday's preseason matchup with the Redskins, the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Benjamin, who missed most of last season with a torn ACL, has impressed the Browns' coaching staff thus far in camp. While he's hoping to expand his role outside of special teams, he'll first need to prove he's healthy enough to handle kick return duties. Benjamin sat out last weekend's preseason opener against Detroit.

Benjamin (knee) has seen his role in the Browns' offense grow, ESPN Cleveland reports.

Benjamin caught a deep ball for a touchdown from quarterback Johnny Manziel during Wednesday's practice, and hauled in several more receptions during team drills. His role as a kick returner is well-established at this point, but the 24-year-old isn't content to be just a return man. He's been seeing more reps with Josh Gordon away from the practice field, and could be one of the candidates to see additional snaps after Gordon is finally handed his suspension. The report didn't name any other names, but mentioned the high frequency of balls being dropped at Wednesday's practice, effectively making Benjamin stand out even more. He's coming off a torn ACL last season and has just 23 career receptions, but has so far been praised by the new coaching staff.

Benjamin (knee) did not play Saturday's preseason opener against the Lions, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Benjamin does not have any sort of new injury, but the Browns are playing it cautiously with the receiver who tore his ACL last October. He's projected to be the primary return man in Cleveland, but will also compete for targets in the offense once he's ready to take the field. Benjamin's not a flashy fantasy option in leagues that don't reward return yardage, but he may get his chance in the offense once the Josh Gordon suspension is handed down.
