09/18/14 - WR Kelvin Benjamin, who tweaked his right knee Sunday, did not practice Wednesday. The Panthers hope to have him back Thursday.
09/14/14 - WR Kelvin Benjamin's consistency was sometimes viewed as a concern in the offseason, yet the Panthers expect big things from the 2014 first-round pick. The fluctuation in his execution was evident on a pair of back-to-back plays in the fourth quarter. He dropped a pass that would have resulted in a first down, then on the next play hauled in a highlight-reel reception for a 24-yard gain down the sideline.
"You have to stay with it and keep going, and that's what I did," Benjamin said of the sequence.
09/07/14 - WR Kelvin Benjamin got his career off to a strong start Sunday afternoon against the Buccaneers, catching six passes for 92 yards and a touchdown -- one that completely showcased his physical gifts and his athletic ability. Benjamin should continue to be a primary target in the Panthers' offense going forward, though coach Ron Rivera cautioned that Benjamin is still learning and making rookie mistakes. "Alignment mistakes, route depth, he got called for blocking in the back," Rivera said. "But he's learning."
08/18/14 - WR Kelvin Benjamin, the first-round pick, made first big rookie mistake, picking up a penalty after head-butting CB Chris Owens.
07/31/14 - WR Kelvin Benjamin, who is nursing a knee bruise, spent most of his day Thursday under the tent and on a bike. He had the sleeve he had on his leg Tuesday and was walking fine.
