Over the last few weeks, Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Travis Benjamin has been dealing with nagging foot issues that have kept him off the field.

Things have become a bit more complicated for Benjamin. On Monday, head coach Anthony Lynn said Benjamin suffered a setback by re-aggravating the foot injury that will likely keep him out for an extended period of time, according to Eric Wiliams of ESPN.

Benjamin hasn't taken the field since the season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs, where he notched just a single catch on five targets for one receiving yard. In the weeks since, he has worked hard to return to the practice field, but now he appears to be on the shelf for at least the next several games.

Throughout his career, Benjamin has proven to be a big-play factor throughout his career. In each of his first two seasons with the Chargers, he has recorded more than 550 receiving yards and at least four touchdowns each year.

However, Benjamin hasn't truly latched onto a consistent role in the offense, allowing wide receivers such as Tyrell Williams and Mike Williams to pick up more playing time in the process. This depth at the wide receiver position has led to less dependency on Benjamin's production, as running back Melvin Gordon has also been a major factor in the passing game.

The Chargers will likely continue to move forward with their current crop of receiving options that have provided Pro Bowl quarterback Philip Rivers with plenty of viable targets. In the meantime, the team will continue to keep a close eye on Benjamin's health to get a better determination about when he can return to the fold.
