Kelvin Benjamin (right knee) is "still being evaluated."
Coach Sean McDermott said it was "too early to tell" on Benjamin's Week 15 status. He tweaked his troublesome knee twice in Sunday's snow bowl. Benjamin has played hurt a number of times this season, but he's probably going to be forced to sit for the fantasy semifinals. Dec 11 - 1:09 PM

Kelvin Benjamin left Week 14 against the Colts with a knee injury.

Benjamin re-injured the same knee that cost him the last two games. He had three catches for 38 yards and Buffalo's only touchdown before exiting. Benjamin was cleared to return late in the fourth quarter, but limped off on his first play back and didn't return.
Dec 10 - 3:26 PM

Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is active for Week 14 against the Colts.

Benjamin was removed from the injury report after missing the last two games. His return should make a red-zone impact, but Benjamin isn't more than a low-upside WR3 with Nathan Peterman starting. Buffalo's inactives are QB Tyrod Taylor, LT Cordy Glenn, OG John Miller, CB Leonard Johnson, WR Brandon Reilly, OT Seantrel Henderson and TE Khari Lee.

Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was not listed on the final injury report.

He got in his second full practice in a row on Friday before being left off the final report. It means he will suit up for the first time since Week 11. Benjamin's return could not have come in a better matchup, but it is likely Nathan Peterman will be under center. That makes him an upside WR3.
Dec 8 - 10:58 PM

Coach Sean McDermott said Kelvin Benjamin (knee) has a "really good" chance to play Week 14 against the Colts.

He's missed basically the past three games after getting hurt on the opening drive against the Chargers when he tore his meniscus. Benjamin should be back out there and will be in the WR3 mix against a bad defense.
Dec 8 - 10:28 AM

Updating an earlier report, Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

He'll be back this week after sitting out the last two games with a torn meniscus. Benjamin gets an enticing matchup versus Indianapolis, though he won't be worth starting unless Tyrod Taylor (knee) can get the green light.
Dec 7 - 3:11 PM

Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is practicing again on Thursday.

Benjamin will likely be limited again, but he has now gotten in some work in back-to-back practices, likely putting him on track to return this week. While he would be a better fantasy option if Tyrod Taylor (knee) is able to play, Benjamin will be an upside WR3 even if Nathan Peterman is under center in a great matchup against the Colts.

Kelvin Benjamin (knee) returned to practice Wednesday, getting in a limited session.

It's his first practice action since getting hurt early in Nathan Peterman's debut against the Chargers three weeks ago. Benjamin is coming back from a torn meniscus. For now, consider him questionable for Week 14.
Dec 6 - 9:55 AM

Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is expected to resume practicing this week.

Benjamin has been sidelined the past two weeks. When asked if Benjamin's was a return to practice was a sign he'll return to game action, coach Sean McDermott responded "practice leads to playing." If Benjamin does come back, it will be to an excellent matchup with the Colts, but uncertainty as to who will be under center as Tyrod Taylor battles a knee injury.

Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is out for Week 13 against the Patriots.

It's no surprise as Benjamin hasn't practiced since suffering a torn meniscus in Week 11. He remains week-to-week. Zay Jones, Jordan Matthews and Charles Clay will be the Bills' main pass-catchers Sunday against the division-leading Patriots. Jones has struggled this year but makes for an interesting play in a game with garbage-time potential.
Dec 1 - 10:16 AM

Kelvin Benjamin (knee) did not practice Thursday.

Benjamin did stretch with the team, but he left to work with the trainers before practice began. Despite coach Sean McDermott calling him "day to day," Benjamin is unlikely to play this week, leaving Zay Jones as the No. 1 receiver.
Nov 30 - 12:26 PM

Kelvin Benjamin (knee) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Coach Sean McDermott said Benjamin is still day to day. McDermott's day to day and the real world's day to day are two different things. McDermott has been calling players day to day who have missed weeks.
Nov 29 - 9:49 AM

The Bills have confirmed Kelvin Benjamin is dealing with a torn meniscus.

Coach Sean McDermott denied the injury earlier Monday but apparently misunderstood a reporter's question. It's no walk in the park issue, one that can require multi-week absences. Nevertheless, the Bills are labeling Benjamin "day to day" and keeping alive the idea that he could return for Week 13. We would consider Benjamin genuinely questionable to suit up against the Patriots.
Nov 27 - 2:18 PM

Kelvin Benjamin (knee) remains day to day.

Speaking Monday, coach Sean McDermott said Benjamin is "working hard." Thanks, coach. McDermott also denied a rumor that Benjamin is dealing with a torn meniscus. Listed as "questionable" for Week 12, there would seem to be a decent chance Benjamin returns for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Nov 27 - 1:23 PM

Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is out for Week 12 against the Chiefs.

Benjamin didn't practice all week and wasn't expected to play. Jordan Matthews (knee) and Charles Clay (knee) are both questionable but are expected to play and soak up the majority of targets.
