EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Kelvin Benjamin's debut with the Buffalo Bills will have to wait.
The wide receiver, acquired Tuesday in a trade with the Carolina Panthers, went through warmups with the Bills prior to Thursday night's game against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium, but will not play, a league source confirmed to The Buffalo News. ESPN's Adam Schefter was first to report that Benjamin will not play.

The Jets will be without cornerback Morris Clairborne, who is inactive. The other starting cornerback, Buster Skrine, was cleared Wednesday after missing Sunday's game with a concussion. Cornerback Rashard Robinson, whom the Jets acquired Tuesday from the San Francisco 49ers, is active.
