BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns speedy return specialist Travis Benjamin tore a knee ligament Sunday and will miss the remainder of the season.

Benjamin sustained a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the 23-17 loss to unbeaten Kansas City. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Benjamin, one of the league's top punt returners, twisted his knee while planting and will need surgery.

The second-year wide receiver has been a major playmaker for the Browns. He returned a punt 79 yards for a touchdown on Oct. 3, and his 86-yard kickoff return set up a TD for the Browns on Oct. 20 against Green Bay.

Chudzinski said wide receiver Davone Bell will handle punt return duties. After replacing Benjamin, Bess had a crucial fumble while trying to catch a punt on the run in the fourth quarter.
