Patriots' Martellus Bennett: Sits out Wednesday's practice
Bennett (ankle/shoulder) did not practice Wednesday.
Though Bennett missed a handful of plays during this past Sunday's win over the Jets after tweaking his ankle, we suspect that his absence from practice Wednesday was maintenance-related. Bennett has been an injury report regular since Week 6, but he's played through his aches and pains since then and we'd expect that to remain the case Sunday against the Rams. Meanwhile, fellow TE Rob Gronkowski (back) also missed practice Wednesday, and his Week 13 status looks less secure than Bennett's at this stage.
