Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin updates his knee injury (video)
ORCHARD PARK – Buffalo Bills wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin hasn’t had the best knee luck.
The newest addition to the Bills (6-5) wide receiver room tore the meniscus in his right knee two weeks ago against the Los Angeles Chargers, a game which Buffalo lost 54-24.
In 2015, Benjamin tore the ACL in his left knee while a member of the Carolina Panthers.
That left knee is recovered but the right will keep him out of the lineup against the New England Patriots (9-2), most likely, according to Benjamin. However, the team lists him as “day-to-day.”
“I mean, I don’t know. It’s up to the team. Like I said, I don’t really think so, but I’m feeling better,” Benjamin said.
In terms of his first injury, Benjamin said right away he was worried the injury in his right knee was more serious. A torn meniscus only requires approximately a month to heal if surgery is not required.
Benjamin indicated he’s not expecting to have any surgery on the injury, but still he added that suffering an injury so early in his career with the Bills is a little bit of a downer.
“It’s frustrating, but at the same time I can’t wait to get back,” Benjamin said.
