Giants tight end Martellus Bennett left Sunday's game in the first quarter with what appears to be a hyperextended left knee. His return is questionable.Fantasy Spin:Bennett had caught a touchdown in three of the first four games this season. With Hakeem Nicks and Ramses Barden sidelined, Bennett was likely to see a lot of targets.
