San Diego Chargers wide receiver Travis Benjamin has been very good for the team, but he’s listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons with a knee injury.
Benjamin, 26, was a fourth-round pick by the Cleveland Browns in 2014 and spent four seasons with them before he joined the Chargers as a free agent this offseason. Benjamin’s best season saw him catch 68 passes for 966 yards and five touchdowns in 2015 and he’s on pace to beat those numbers with Philip Rivers throwing him the football.
In six games, Benjamin has caught 31 of the 44 passes thrown his way for 411 yards and two touchdowns. He is San Diego’s top receiver, and if they have to be without him, it would be a big blow against a Falcons team that will be hard to keep up with on offense even when the Chargers are 100 percent.
However, Michael Gehlken reports that the Chargers are “not concerned” about Benjamin and that he is expected to play in Atlanta, which is good news.
