The team announced Tuesday evening that receiver Arrelious Benn has torn his ACL.
Benn had been looking to compete for the starting spot vacated by Maclin, but -- following the trend of his career -- he had been injured for much of training camp. Philadelphia had traded with the Buccaneers for Benn, who showed promise but couldn't stay healthy. He had missed 10 games combined in the past two years, and he tore the same ACL in 2010.
"I've got to stay healthy," Benn said Sunday. "If I can prove to them I can stay healthy, I'll be all right. ... Football's all about opportunity and timing."
Unfortunately for Benn, those two qualities continue to fail him.
