Kelvin Benjamin attempted to make a simple cut on a wheel route during practice against the Dolphins Wednesday when his left knee gave out. He was noticeably in pain -- clutching at his leg on the ground.
The Panthers and Dolphins are holding a joint practice, where the injury was caught on video. None of us are doctors, but it's a non-contact injury and it doesn't look good.

Benjamin did not put weight on the leg following the injury, and was carted from the field. There is no update on his status at this time.

It's too early to speculate on severity. All we can do is hope that Benjamin is okay, because without him there's no receiving corps this season. Let's not even talk about it ... not yet.
