Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin returned to the field last night after missing the 2015 season. Due for a breakout sophomore campaign, Benjamin tore his ACL in preseason camp last year. The Panthers receiving corps relied on a motley crue of young players and veterans to post a franchise best 15-1 record. With Benjamin’s return, the Panthers offense is now fully loaded to make another run at the Lombardi trophy.
In his first regular season action in a year, Benjamin finished last night’s game with six catches for 91 yards and a touchdown. Benjamin’s touchdown was the first score of the NFL season. Benjamin showed no signs of his injury as the game wore on. With Cam Newton’s biggest receiving weapon back, the Panthers have a chance to be deadlier than last year’s record setting squad.
