Buccaneers WR Arrelious Benn out 4 weeks due to sprained MCL

Some scribes consider Arrelious Benn @ArreliousBenn a question mark to make the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' final roster. If he does, it will most likely come without any participation for the rest of the preseason. Benn sprained his right MCL during Friday's training camp practice, the Bucs' first of the year, and is expected to miss up to four weeks. Benn has played in 29 of 32 regular-season games since coming into the league as a second-round pick in 2010. But he didn't top 30 receptions or 500 yards in either season.

Fantasy Analysis:

With Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams, the Bucs are set as it comes to their starting wide receivers. But in the past couple of days, they have cut 2011 touchdown leader Dezmon Briscoe and seen Benn limp away. There's no fantasy value here past the top duo -- especially since the Bucs plan to be a run-heavy squad this season -- but the team's depth has been seriously compromised quickly.
