by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Eagles wide receiver Arrelious Benn was not a participant in Saturday's practice, as he deals with a concussion suffered in Thursday's preseason game. Benn will have to be cleared through the league's concussion protocol, and there is no timetable for his return to action. .

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Eagles wide receiver Arrelious Benn was forced out of Thursday's preseason tuneup against the Steelers with a head injury, per Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia. Benn left the game in the second half and did not return. He was not targeted once before the injury.

Arrelious Benn re-signs with Eagles


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/19/2014) After cutting Arrelious Benn last week, the Eagles re-signed him, likely to a cheaper contract. The team announced the move on Monday, giving them additional depth at receiver. 

Benn didn't play last season because of a torn ACL suffered last summer. He has 59 catches for 862 yards and five touchdowns in his career, all in 37 games with the Bucs. 


Eagles release Arrelious Benn


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/17/2014) The Eagles announced the release of veteran receiver Arrelious Benn on Friday. Benn tore his ACL last summer after being dealt to Philadelphia for Tampa Bay.

Benn has 59 catches for 862 yards and five touchdowns in his career, all in 37 games with the Bucs. 


Jeremy Maclin, Arrelious Benn plan to be ready for OTAs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Eagles receivers Jeremy Maclin and Arrelious Benn, who are both recovering from torn ACLs, say they plan to be ready for OTAs in the spring, reports the Delaware News Journal. Maclin is an impending free agent, while Benn is under contract for 2014.

Arrelious Benn lost for season with torn ACL


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/6/2013) Eagles receiver Arrelious Benn tore his left ACL in practice on Tuesday and will miss the 2013 season

Benn is no stranger to injuries. Since joining the NFL in 2010 Benn has torn his left ACL, suffered a concussion, sprained his right MCL and hurt a shoulder. 

He was facing an uphill battle to start in the first place. The Eagles look as if DeSean Jackson, Russell Shepard and Riley Cooper are in the mix to start at receiver. 


Arrelious Benn returns to practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2013) Eagles receiver Arrelious Benn returned to practice Sunday after missing nine days with a hyperextended knee. With Jeremy Maclin out for the season and Riley Cooper on an extended leave of absence, Benn has a big opportunity.

Coach Chip Kelly told CSNPhilly.com that Benn stayed mentally sharp during his absence.

“I was pleasantly surprised,” Kelly said. “You expect some rust, to be honest with you. I thought he was really good from a mental standpoint.
 
“He missed some insertion time because, obviously, he was out. We can't stop insertion just because one guy is out. We called things today he had never run in practice before that he really picked up.”


Hyperextended knee to keep Arrelious Benn out


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/30/2013) Eagles receiver Arrelious Benn has been sidelined with a hyperextended knee and will need a week or two to recover, ESPN reported. 

The oft-injured Benn will compete for playing time when he gets healthy as he's one of a few wideouts competing for the spot opened up when Jeremy Maclin tore his ACL. 


For Riley Cooper, starting job is "his job to lose"


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/30/2013) With Jeremy Maclin lost for the year with a torn ACL, Comcast Sportsnet believes that Riley Cooper is the guy who will be given the first crack to replace him on the Eagles. As writer Reuben Frank wrote, "[i]t's his job to lose." Damaris Johnson, Arrelious Benn and Jason Avant also figure to get involved. 

Cooper had 13 catches for 138 yards and two touchdowns in five starts last season. 


Potential fallout from Jeremy Maclin injury


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/27/2013) The Jeremy Maclin leg injury sounds pretty serious. It's terrible because the Eagles receiving corps isn't exactly rich with established talent and Maclin himself was poised to work hard in a contract year. Drafting him is a mistake until we know more about his situation. 

In the event his injury is season-ending, expect tall receiver Riley Cooper and speedster Damaris Johnson to see a lot of work in his place (Arrelious Benn would also be a factor except he, too, is battling an injury). These receivers shouldn't be drafted outside of deeper leagues but could be useful off waivers once byes kick in. 

Another move the Eagles could do is lean on tight end-heavy formations. For now Philadelphia has three intriguing tight ends in Brent Celek, James Casey and rookie Zach Ertz. All have had time with the first-team offense in the early days of camp. It wouldn't be a shock to see two of the three, if not all three, on the field at the same time. The Eagles could then look for mismatches in the quick-hitting passing game. 

Of the three tight ends, Casey is the one with the most upside, especially after a report last week suggested Casey was one of two receiving tight ends while Celek was more of a blocker. 


Arrelious Benn, Cary Williams leave Eagles practice


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/26/2013) Eagles receiver Arrelious Benn and cornerback Cary Williams both left practice Friday with injuries. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Williams has a tender hamstring while Benn has a left knee injury and is being further evaluated. 

Benn signs extension


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/22/2013) Arrelious Benn has signed a one-year contract extension with the Eagles, keeping him with the team through the 2014 season. Benn was candid when discussing his career with the Bucs. "If I'm being honest with you, I don’t like my career," Benn told Philadelphia Magazine. "I've got to stay healthy. I haven't stayed healthy. I've had a problem with injuries. When I was healthy and out there, I made plays. I was consistent. But the big thing for me is to stay healthy. It’s no secret for me, I know that. I’m going to be honest with myself. Just come in here and do what I've got to do."

Benn traded to Eagles


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/15/2013) Oft-injured wide receiver Arrelious Benn was traded from the Bucs to the Eagles on Friday. Tampa Bay also sent a 2013 seventh-round pick and received a 2013 sixth-round pick and conditional 2014 pick in exchange from the Eagles.
