Kelvin Benjamin sprains knee

Carolina Panthers wide reciever Kelvin Benjamin sustained a sprained left knee and will undergo a magnetic resonance imaging exam. "He just went to plant and make a swim move, and without any contact just went down," Panthers coach ROn Rivera said. "It's unfortunate. It's one of those things that could have happened in any drill." Last season, Benjamin led Carolina with 73 catches for for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns. "It's not going to change the complexion of what we want to do or how we're going to do it," Rivera said. "It's just going to change who's going to do Devin Funchess are going to have to step up until Kelvin is back."
