Browns' Benjamin tears ACL, done for season

Cleveland Browns wide receiver and kick returner Travis Benjamin tore his anterior cruciate ligament and is done for the season, coach Rob Chudzinski announced during a press conference.

He will be placed on injured reserve, a pending transaction that will create a roster spot and a void in the Browns' return game.

He's averaging 11.7 yards per punt return and ran back a punt against teh Buffalo Bills.

Davone Bess will fill in on returns for Benjamin.

“You saw the growth as a player, as a receiver as well as the obvious that you see as a returner on the punt returns and then some on the kickoff returns as well,” Chudzinski said. “It’s a tough loss for us, but we’ll have some guys step up.”
