Philadelphia Eagles have confirmed that wide receiver Arrelious Benn has torn his anterior cruciate ligament during Tuesday's training camp session.

Benn damaged his left knee while serving as a blocker on a kickoff drill during a special-teams session in a joint practice with the New England Patriots in Philadelphia.

The injury - his second of the summer - is likely to keep the 24-year-old out for the rest of Chip Kelly's side's 2013 season, reports Csnphilly.com.

Benn becomes the second Eagles receiver to injure his ACL during training camp after Jeremy Maclin went down with the same injury last week.

The 24-year-old was traded to Kelly's side in April for a 2013 sixth-round draft pick and a conditional pick in 2014.
