Martellus Bennett briefly left Sunday's game between the Giants and the Browns in the first quarter with a knee sprain. The tight end was able to return on the Giants' next offensive series, however. We break down the fantasy implications.

Martellus Bennett briefly left Sunday's game between the New York Giants and the Cleveland Browns in the first quarter due to a sprained knee. He was marked as questionable to return, but was able to play on the Giants' next offensive series.

Fantasy Impact: The injury looked bad at the time. Bennett planted his left leg and hyper-extended his knee while blocking on the back side of a running play. He didn't stay on the sideline long, however. Bennett had an eight-yard reception earlier in the game, but hasn't been targeted since the injury. There has been no word whether or not he is actively being limited, however. His lack of targets could simply be because Ahmad Bradshaw and the downfield passing game have been very successful on their own.
