A disappointing season in Cleveland has taken another bad turn.

Travis Benjamin, the second-year player who has emerged as a big-play threat both on offense and on special teams, is out for the season after suffering a torn ACL in Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs.

Benjamin suffered the injury when he planted his foot to cut on a return in the third quarter, coach Rob Chudzinski confirmed today.

“Travis obviously is a big part of what we do, and has been in terms of return game,” Chudzinski said. “He’s explosive and has the speed and ability to make a big play.”
