Carolina's reeling offense lost another key piece on Sunday.

Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin did not return to Carolina's Week 3 loss to the New Orleans after suffering a knee injury, the team announced. Benjamin limped off the field after suffering the injury in the first half.

However, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Benjamin did not suffer a major injury, per early indications, and has been described as "fine."

The wideout had two catches for eight yards before leaving the game. The Panthers entered Sunday already without tight end Greg Olsen, who broke his foot last week against the Bills.
