Benjamin (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams. With Benjamin set to miss his second straight game, the Chargers' Week 3 wideout corps will be headed by Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Tyrell Williams.
Benjamin (foot), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, is viewed as a "long shot" to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Benjamin appears set to miss his second straight game with the right foot injury after he was unable to advance beyond limited practice participation this week. With Benjamin trending toward another inactive status, Tyrell Williams and Mike Williams will be locked in as the clear top complements in the passing game behind lead wideout Keenan Allen. Geremy Davis or J.J. Jones would fill in for Benjamin on the rare occasions the Chargers utilize four-receiver sets.
Benjamin (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. Benjamin can stretch the field vertically when healthy, but he'll be a speculative fantasy play until he gets a full and productive game in, given that the capable trio of Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Tyrell Williams remain in the Chargers' wideout mix.
Benjamin (foot) did not practice Thursday. More on Benjamin's Week 3 status come Friday, but missing practice Thursday after being limited Wednesday isn't the most promising sign regarding the wideout's chances of suiting up Sunday against the Rams.
Benjamin (foot) was limited Wednesday's practice. When healthy enough to play, Benjamin has the speed to break off the occasional big play, but weekly volume will likely be an issue for him with Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Tyrell Williams ahead of him on the depth chart. The foot injury ultimately kept Benjamin inactive in Week 2, so he may need to put in a full practice Thursday or Friday to have a good shot at suiting up Sunday against the Rams.
