ORCHARD PARK, NY — Bills wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin is dealing with a torn meniscus and did not sound optimistic about his chances of playing this Sunday against the Patriots.

"I don't know it's up to the team. I don't really think so but I'm feeling better though," Benjamin said.

Even though it doesn't sound like he'll return this Sunday, good news is it seems like he'll return before the season is done.

"I'm definitely going to play, I'm definitely going to be back out there before the season is over," Benjamin explained.

He left in the first quarter of the Bills' loss to the Chargers in week 11. So far, he has only missed last week's game against the Chiefs.
