Kelvin Benjamin doesn’t want to ‘baby’ knee in return to field

A little less than a year ago, Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin tore his ACL and was out for the entire 2015 season. He is looking to get back onto the field this year, but he doesn’t want people to think he will take it easy.

He was back on the field with the team for the beginning of OTAs last Thursday and seems to be working out pretty hard. Despite not being able to fully participate, he is not holding back in any of the drills that is takes part in.

“Not at all. I try not to baby it,” Benjamin said. “I try to go hard. Whatever the route is, I try to trust in the process that we have been doing, the rehabbing. So I just go ahead and make that plant.”

During his rookie season with the Panthers, Kelvin Benjamin recorded over 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns. He is looking to be a big piece for the Panthers going into the 2016 season.
