Kelvin Benjamin traded to the Bills

In a move that we didn’t see coming, the Panthers have traded away Kelvin Benjamin. Benjamin is headed to the Buffalo Bills, the team announced Tuesday. The Panthers get a third-round pick and a seventh-round pick out of the deal, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.

Benjamin is the team’s leading receiver with 475 yards and two touchdowns on 32 catches with the Panthers this season.

What does this mean for the Bills? The Bills are 5-2, and Benjamin should help Tyrod Taylor keep that momentum going.

Tight end Charles Clay and running back LeSean McCoy both have more targets and receiving yards than any of the receivers currently on Buffalo’s roster. The Bills traded Sammy Watkins to the Rams before the season and brought in Jordan Matthews from the Eagles, but Matthews hasn’t looked like a No. 1 receiver. Matthews has just 193 yards and a touchdown this year.

Benjamin gives Taylor a big, physical target — and one who can help the Bills keep winning.

Luck had what the Colts believed was a mild setback more than two weeks ago, when he experienced soreness in his throwing shoulder after he was cleared to practice. He received a cortisone injection for the pain at that time and proceeded to have a good week of rehab, only to experience another setback, which the team does not believe is serious, a source said.

Nevertheless, Luck’s recovery from surgery to repair a torn labrum on Jan. 15 is clearly an unforeseen development and the quarterback finally decided to seek additional opinions. One of those visits to a specialist is scheduled for Monday, the source added.blues-020
