Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin will be out for the 2015 season due to tearing the anterior cruciate (ACL) ligament in his left knee.
The injury happened Wednesday during practice. The Panthers say an MRI confirmed the injury.
“Obviously, we feel awful for Kelvin,” said general manager Dave Gettleman. “He’s worked tremendously hard to put himself in a position to have a strong year. We’re confident he will attack his surgery and rehab with the same determination he has met all challenges before.”
