Monday ProCanes Report: Benjamin Breaks Out
The Monday Morning ProCanes report
will weed through all the NFL highlights and news to bring you the information
you care about the most... what the former University of Miami Hurricanes did
during the week prior. Three quick touchdown strikes in Week Three helped
reveal the true depth of the ProCane pipeline to the NFL. While Pro Bowl tight
end Jimmy Graham opened the ProCanes' scoring
for the third straight week, touchdowns from 12th-year veteran
Santana Moss and rookie Travis Benjamin helped solidify another strong week for
Miami Hurricanes in the professional ranks.
Edgerrin James (Indianapolis Colts) - Ring of Honor Inductee
Though he has not made a splash on Sundays since announcing his retirement in June 2011, Edgerrin James was honored at halftime of Indianapolis' game against Jacksonville as the ninth-ever inductee into the franchise's Ring of Honor. As the franchise's all-time leading rusher with nearly 10,000 yards on the ground, James was accompanied by former teammates and Colts' greats for his ceremony. See more from his induction HERE.
Travis Benjamin (Cleveland Browns) -
two catches, 44 yards, one touchdown
The 2012 fourth-round draft pick had a breakout game against the Bills, displaying his patented quickness in the Browns' close 24-14 loss. Benjamin, who had caught only one pass in Cleveland's first two weeks, caught two balls Sunday, including a 22-yard touchdown grab for his first career score. Benjamin made a nice catch past the near pylon and tapped his toes before falling out of bounds, cutting the Bills' lead to only three points late in the third quarter. The Belle Glade, Fla., native now has over 100 all-purpose yards on the season.

Reggie Wayne (Indianapolis
Colts) - eight catches, 88 yards
Three weeks in to his 12th season with Indianapolis, Reggie Wayne still shows no signs of slowing down. With his 88-yard performance, the veteran wideout surpassed 12,000 yards for his career in the Colts' disappointing loss to the Jaguars. Wayne, who ranks fifth in the NFL with 294 receiving yards and fourth with 23 receptions, has helped guide an Indianapolis offense in transition under first-year signal caller Andrew Luck. With 60 yards next week against Green Bay, Wayne would pass Derrick Mason for 19th place in all-time receiving yards.
Andre Johnson (Houston Texans) - two catches, 72 yards, touchdown
It's not often #80 is left free to stretch the field for the Houston Texans' offense. On Sunday, however, Andre Johnson hauled in a 60-yard bomb from quarterback Matt Schaub for his second touchdown of the young season. Johnson, now the longest-tenured player in franchise history, helped Houston edge Denver 31-25 in a pivotal early-season match-up. His 60-yard score matched his longest grab in nearly two seasons, since a Nov. 2010 match-up against Jacksonville.
