Reports of Kelvin Benjamin‘s demise were premature.

Benjamin proved to be in fine form Wednesday night against the Houston Texans, amid previous reports that he was out of shape.

The 26-year-old made easy work of Texans veteran cornerback Johnathan Joseph, spinning past him in the air to record a 23-yard touchdown, giving the Carolina Panthers a 7-0 lead.
