Travis Benjamin Injury: Updates on Browns WR's Ribs and Return
USA TODAY Sports

As if worrying about the status of Josh Gordon wasn't enough for the Cleveland Browns, now they could be without Travis Benjamin.

The Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reported that Benjamin was being tested for a concussion by the team's medical staff on the sidelines during Monday night's preseason game against the Washington Redskins:

The Browns later provided an update:

The 24-year-old is listed as third in the team's depth chart behind Gordon and Andrew Hawkins. If Gordon is suspended by the league, Benjamin would obviously take on a larger role in the offense.

In the event that Benjamin did suffer a concussion, it will only compound the headache the Browns coaching staff is feeling at the moment. Every player responds differently to a concussion, so there's no telling how long he could be out.

At least Cleveland has a couple more weeks left in the preseason to allow Benjamin to recover before the regular season gets underway.
