Cleveland wide receiver and return specialist Travis Benjamin will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his right knee, reports the Associated Press.
Benjamin twisted his knee during a return late in the third quarter of the Browns loss to the Chiefs on Sunday, according to Browns' coach Rob Chudzinski. A second year player out of Miami, Benjamin has one special teams touchdown this year as well as five catches for 105 yards as a wide receiver.

The loss had an immediate impact on the Browns, as Benjamin's replacement Davone Bess muffed a crucial punt return late in the fourth quarter, allowing the Chiefs to keep the ball and hold on for the win.
