Kansas City Chiefs WR Chris Conley is expected to see extended action in the third preseason game Friday, Aug. 28. Conley has a chance to rise up the depth chart because WRs Albert Wilson and Jason Avant have been quiet in training camp.

Panthers | No timetable for Kelvin Benjamin

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 16:33:34 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) doesn't have a timetable for his return after bruising his left knee, but he is expected to be back in days, not weeks. Head coach Ron Rivera said Benjamin should be back before the end of training camp Aug. 12. So far in camp, Benjamin has looked really good and hasn't dropped a pass during team drills while running with the first-team offense. WR Jason Avant moved up to the first-team offense Monday, July 28, with Benjamin out.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin's injury isn't serious, but he could miss some valuable time with the starters in camp, especially since he's a rookie. Don't expect too much of Benjamin in his first year in an offense that doesn't have many other legitimate receiving threats.
