Benjamin, 24, caught 73 passes for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie in 2014. He was expected to be Cam Newton top target this season. This is a major loss for the Panthers, who look to make the playoffs for the third straight season.
Carolina may look to add a veteran like Reggie Wayne to fill the void for this season.
