Eagles placed WR Arrelious Benn (concussion) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The 39th overall pick in the 2010 draft, Benn's NFL career has been railroaded by various injuries. He'll probably be released with a settlement.
Aug 29 - 3:11 PM

Eagles WR Arrelious Benn was forced from Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers with a head injury, and will not return.

Benn, who wasn't targeted before going down, is quite likely concussed. It's bad news for a player trying to make the team after missing all of 2013 with a torn ACL. If Benn can't suit up for next week's finale, he'll finish the preseason with one catch for six yards. He's a poor bet to crack the 53-man roster.
Aug 21 - 9:45 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Eagles WR Arrelious Benn has experienced "no issues" with his surgically-repaired left knee.

Benn tore his ACL last August, and spent the year on injured reserve. He was waived May 16 before being re-signed to a smaller salary three days later. Although still only 26 (in September), Benn is a long-shot to crack the Eagles' 53.
May 27 - 9:23 PM

Eagles re-signed WR Arrelious Benn.

Benn is coming off an ACL tear and was previously scheduled to make $1.1 million. So the Eagles cut him and then brought him back three days later -- likely on a minimum contract. Injury-plagued and unproductive throughout his career, Benn is an extremely poor bet to make an impact on the Eagles' receiving corps this season.
May 19 - 9:35 AM

Eagles waived WR Arrelious Benn.

Benn is coming off a torn ACL and was scheduled to make $1.1 million. It wouldn't be surprising if the Eagles bring him back at a lower salary. A second-round pick by the Bucs in 2010, Benn has struggled with injuries throughout his career and has just 59 catches over the last three seasons. Benn's release is mostly for cap purposes, but getting waived at this stage of the offseason isn't a good sign for his NFL future.
May 16 - 3:08 PM

Eagles placed WR Arrelious Benn on injured reserve with a torn left ACL, ending his season.

Benn is now tasked with returning from his second torn left ACL in four years. Although he's still only 25 (in September), it could be a career-killing injury for the former Buc. The No. 39 overall pick of the 2010 draft, Benn has just 59 catches in 37 career games. He's currently under contract with the Eagles for 2014, but it's highly doubtful he'll be back.
Wed, Aug 7, 2013 04:23:00 PM

Eagles WR Arrelious Benn has been diagnosed with a torn left ACL, and is done for the season.

It's the same ACL Benn tore in 2010. It's a career-clouding injury, as the 2010 second-rounder has provided little, if any, impressive tape during his three-year career. Benn wasn't competing for a starting job in Philadelphia, and was going to need an impressive preseason to even crack the 53-man roster. The chronically-injured wideout turns 25 next month.
Tue, Aug 6, 2013 06:55:00 PM

Coach Chip Kelly said he was "pleasantly surprised" by how Arrelious Benn (knee) looked in his first practice Sunday.

Benn is trying to shed an injury-prone label, make the Eagles' roster and help fill Jeremy Maclin's shoes all at once. He's a name to watch because he's more talented than Riley Cooper or Jason Avant, and has far greater size (6'2/220) than Damaris Johnson. Benn started off with the third team on Sunday, behind the likes of rookies Ifeanyi Momah and Russell Shepard.
Mon, Aug 5, 2013 08:44:00 AM

Eagles WR Arrelious Benn (knee) has resumed practicing in training camp.

He'd been sidelined since July 26 with a hyperextended knee. Benn is working with the third- and fourth-team offenses. He could earn an opportunity to replace Jeremy Maclin with a big preseason, but that currently looks like a long shot.
Sun, Aug 4, 2013 05:53:00 PM

Eagles WR Arrelious Benn has been sidelined by a hyperextended knee.

Benn is expected to miss 1-2 weeks. It's another setback for a former second-round pick who busted in Tampa after tearing his ACL in 2010. Benn isn't a real threat to Riley Cooper's role as Jeremy Maclin's replacement.
Tue, Jul 30, 2013 09:45:00 AM

New Eagles WR Arrelious Benn knows he's had a "problem with injuries," and acknowledges he's "got to stay healthy" in 2013.

"I'll be honest with you, I don't like my career (to this point)," he said. "I got to stay healthy. I haven't stayed healthy. ... And when I was healthy and out there, I made plays, and I was consistent." Benn missed 11 of a possible 48 games with the Bucs, and was rarely 100 percent. He needs to show something in Eagles camp.
Fri, Mar 22, 2013 10:43:00 AM

Eagles signed WR Arrelious Benn to a one-year extension through 2014.

Benn and a 2013 seventh-round pick were acquired from the Bucs in exchange for a 2013 sixth-round pick and a 2014 conditional pick last week. Benn is signed for $630,000 in 2013, and he's likely getting a bump up to the five-year veteran's minimum for 2014. He'll compete for a roster spot this summer.

Eagles acquired WR Arrelious Benn and a 2013 seventh-round pick from the Buccaneers in exchange for Philadelphia's 2013 sixth-round pick and a 2014 conditional pick.

Bucs GM Mark Dominik didn't get much, but he did do well to get anything at all for Benn, who's been a near-complete bust since Tampa Bay drafted him with the 39th overall pick in 2010. Billed as a chain-moving possession receiver with run-after-catch ability coming out of Illinois, Benn has been incredibly injury prone en route to just 862 yards and five touchdowns across 37 career games (24 starts). He'll battle for a roster spot in Eagles camp.
Fri, Mar 15, 2013 04:49:00 PM

The Tampa Bay Times reports the Buccaneers are shopping Arrelious Benn.

A colossal disappointment since the Bucs took him 39th overall in the 2010 draft, Benn has managed 59 catches for 862 yards and five touchdowns across 37 career games, making 24 starts. Tampa Bay would lucky to get back a seventh-round pick, although Benn's $630,000 salary does figure to help his market.
