Travis Benjamin Injury Updates

The 49ers have inked WR Travis Benjamin to a 1-year deal. Injuries limited the 30-year-old to just 5 appearances for the Chargers last season. But Benjamin averaged over 14 yards per catch in each of his first 7 NFL campaigns. He'll provide a field-stretching threat for QB Jimmy Garoppolo and the 'Niners -- but Benjamin is a long shot to hold real fantasy value in 2020.

Chargers WRs Mike Williams (back) is out for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. We haven’t heard any details on the back injury or how much longer Williams will be sidelined. WR Travis Benjamin (hip) is listed as doubtful for Week 4, so it looks like Dontrelle Inman will operate as Los Angeles’ #2 WR on Sunday. The juicy matchup makes him a WR4 or flex consideration.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. We still don't have any details on the injury he sustained in last weekend's opener, but HC Anthony Lynn admitted that he's "absolutely" concerned about Williams' availability for Sunday's game against the Lions. His absence would leave Travis Benjamin and Dontrelle Inman behind Keenan Allen on the WR depth chart.

Chargers WR Travis Benjamin has missed the first 2 practices of the week with a right foot injury. He was in a walking boot on Wednesday. Benjamin played 57% of the offensive snaps and saw 5 targets last week, so his absence would be significant -- and a boost to WRs Tyrell and Mike Williams.

Chargers WR Travis Benjamin is inactive for today's game vs. the Chiefs. He wasn't on the injury report, so it looks like he's a healthy scratch. Benjamin finishes his 1st season in San Diego with a 47-677-4 line in 14 outings.

Chargers WR Travis Benjamin drew just 3 targets in Sunday's loss to the Panthers and caught none of them. He has toyed with relevance in returning to his usual playing time while working back from a knee injury, but this is not a guy you want to trust in your fantasy football lineups over the final few weeks.

Chargers WR Travis Benjamin injured his knee in Sunday's game against the Titans. It's unclear whether this is related to the sprained PCL he entered with or a new injury. We'll look for an update after the game.

Chargers WRs Travis Benjamin and Tyrell Williams remained sidelined on Thursday with their knee injuries. Benjamin is dealing with a sprained PCL; we still don't have any details on Williams' issue. Both guys are looking iffy for this weekend's game against the Titans. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Chargers WR Travis Benjamin is dealing with a sprained PCL, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, and will get a 2nd opinion this week. It's unclear exactly when Benjamin suffered the knee injury, but he's played less than 62% of the offensive snaps in 4 straight games. We should get an update on his status later this week.

Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. We don't have any details on his injury, but it's worth noting that he played a season-low 38% of the snaps in San Diego's win over Denver last Thursday night. Check back tomorrow for an update on Benjamin. His absence would leave Tyrell Williams, Dontrelle Inman and Griff Whalen as the Chargers' top 3 WRs.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen suffered an apparent right knee injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He had to be carted off the field. This obviously looks like a significant injury, but we'll update his status when we learn more. His absence would leave San Diego with WRs Travis Benjamin, Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman atop the WR depth chart. TE Antonio Gates would probably be the biggest beneficiary.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Browns WR Travis Benjamin is "unlikely to miss time" with the shoulder injury that knocked him out of yesterday's loss to the Bengals.  "Checked out ok," Rapoport adds.  Benjamin had hauled in 13 balls on 24 targets in the 2 games prior to Week 13.  He'll be a WR3 with upside if he plays against the 49ers this Sunday.

Browns WR Travis Benjamin injured his shoulder in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Bengals and will not return.  He finishes catch-less on 2 targets.  We'll look for an update on his status tonight or tomorrow.

Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) is expected to start Sunday's game against the Cardinals, according to insider Adam Caplan.  We still don't have many details on McCown's injury, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggested that it's not serious.  McCown's availability would be good news for WR Travis Benjamin and TE Gary Barnidge, but he won't be a Week 8 fantasy option vs. Arizona's 3rd-ranked QB defense.
