Carolian Panthers star wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin tore his left anterior cruciate ligament, ending his season.
"Obviously, we feel awful for Kelvin," general manager Dave Gettleman said. "He’s worked tremendously hard to put himself in a position to have a strong year. We’re confident he will attack his surgery and rehab with the same determination he has met all challenges before."
Benjamin caught 73 passes last season 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns.
