Bills confirm report that Kelvin Benjamin has a torn meniscus

The Bills have confirmed that wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin does indeed have a torn meniscus.

At his Monday press conference, Bills coach Sean McDermott said that wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin was day-to-day with a knee injury and refuted the ESPN report that Benjamin has a torn meniscus and will miss several weeks.

Bills PR later told reporters that the coach thought he heard "ligament" when asked.

Benjamin, acquired from the Carolina Panthers at the trade deadline, did not make the trip to Kansas City for Sunday's game.
