Browns WR/PR Travis Benjamin underwent surgery on his torn right ACL on Friday.

Benjamin's surgery reportedly went well and he's expected to be ready for training camp. Anything before that would be a bonus, according to coach Rob Chudzinski. For Benjamin's sake, we hope he can return to his explosive form. Although not a full-time wide receiver, Benjamin is a homerun hitter on punt returns and adds a deep threat element in the passing attack.

Browns placed WR/PR Travis Benjamin on injured reserve with a torn right ACL, ending his season.

Benjamin was having a solid year as a return man, with his 11.7 yards per punt coming in fifth in the NFL. A one-dimensional burner at 5-foot-10, 172 pounds, Benjamin can ill afford any lost explosion. Provided he's healthy, the 2012 fourth-rounder will be back to compete for a roster spot next summer.

Browns WR/PR Travis Benjamin tore his right ACL in Sunday's Week 8 loss at Kansas City.

Benjamin needs surgery and is done for the year. His second NFL season ends with just five catches for 105 yards and 22 punt returns for 257 yards with a touchdown. The undersized yet speedy Miami product will be back to compete for a similar situational role in 2014. Davone Bess will slide in as the Browns new punt returner.

Browns WR Travis Benjamin's lone catch in Week 4 against the Bengals went for a 39-yard gain.

Benjamin exploded through traffic on a tunnel screen for his 39-yard pickup. A situational speed receiver and Cleveland's punt returner, Benjamin is on pace for 20 receptions, 430 yards, and no touchdowns this season.

Browns WR Travis Benjamin caught one pass for 22 yards in Week 2 against the Ravens.

Benjamin came into the game nursing a thigh injury. With Josh Gordon returning from suspension in Week 3, Benjamin will resume situational deep threat duties as a No. 4 receiver. He's also Cleveland's primary punt returner.

Browns WR Travis Benjamin (questionable, thigh) is hopeful he can still return punts and run some deep routes in Week 2.

Benjamin was limited in practice this week. In the Browns' opener, Benjamin started at split end (Josh Gordon's position) and caught three balls for 44 yards. He's not a fantasy factor outside of the deepest return-yardage leagues.

Browns WR Travis Benjamin (thigh) got in his second straight limited practice Thursday.

Benjamin missed a good deal of practice time last season, but only two games. He should be good to go Sunday. Starting for one more week in the absence of Josh Gordon, Benjamin is a threat to catch a deep ball or two, but doesn't produce near enough volume for fantasy purposes.

Travis Benjamin caught three passes for 44 yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Dolphins.

Benjamin started in a two-wide set along with Greg Little. But he caught just three of the eight targets that came his way, suffering at least one bad drop. Once Josh Gordon (suspension) returns in Week 3, Benjamin will see limited snaps at the "X" spot.

Browns WR Travis Benjamin says he's "got the punt-return job."

Josh Cribbs, who was Cleveland's punt returner since 2007, is now in Oakland. Enter Benjamin, a 175-pounder with 4.32 wheels. Last year, Benjamin returned just three punts, but broke one off for a 93-yard touchdown. He'll also get wideout snaps at the "X" position during Josh Gordon's two-game suspension.

The Browns are expected to start Travis Benjamin at X receiver during Josh Gordon's two-game suspension.

Greg Little is the Z receiver, and Davone Bess plays in the slot. Benjamin has sub-4.4 jets and big-play ability, averaging 16.6 yards on 18 receptions as a rookie. He's still unlikely to be a fantasy-viable early-season producer. We wouldn't be surprised if TE Jordan Cameron emerged as Cleveland's leading pass catcher in the first two games, building momentum for a breakout year.

Brandon Weeden says second-year WR Travis Benjamin has "stuck out" in spring practices and praised Benjamin's route-running ability.

Because Greg Little, Davone Bess, and David Nelson are all strict possession receivers, it's conceivable that burner Benjamin will be the primary beneficiary of Josh Gordon's suspension. "Travis had at least as many catches if not more than anybody in camp," Weeden said. "His route running is phenomenal, probably because he’s so fast. Guys have to honor him running by them."

The new Browns regime believes second-year WR Travis Benjamin is capable of becoming an "outstanding" punt returner.

This probably explains Cleveland's complete unwillingness to try to re-sign Josh Cribbs. Benjamin, the 100th pick in last year's draft, possesses 4.36 wheels and broke off a 93-yard punt return touchdown as a rookie despite seeing only three punt return chances all season. In addition to situational deep threat duties on offense, Benjamin will replace Cribbs as the Browns' return specialist.

Travis Benjamin caught four of six passes for 43 yards at Pittsburgh in Week 17.

The fourth-round rookie saw an increase in targets with Josh Gordon sidelined for the second half. He finishes his first season with 18 receptions for 298 yards (16.6 per) and six rushes for 66 yards. Although Benjamin flashed big-play ability, his slight build will likely limit him to deep routes, trick plays, and the return game next season.

Travis Benjamin caught one pass for a 69-yard touchdown in the Browns' Week 15 loss to the Redskins.

Benjamin found himself singled up out wide against Redskins backup CB Dominique Johnson in the fourth quarter of a blowout. For some reason, Johnson sat on the route and Benjamin just blew past him for his second career touchdown. It was Benjamin's second catch since Week 9.
