    Bears' Martellus Bennett: Ruled out for Thursday's contest

    Bennett (ribs) was ruled out for Thursday's game at Green Bay. Bennett turned in limited practices both Tuesday and Wednesday, likely in order to test out his injured ribs, but the Bears will opt for caution and rest the tight end on a short week. In his stead, Zach Miller should have an ample workload, which could expand further if Alshon Jeffery (groin/shoulder) and Matt Forte (knee) are eventually ruled out.

    Bears' Martellus Bennett: Returns to limited practice

    Bennett (ribs) was a limited participant at Tuesday's practice,'s Jeff Dickerson reports. Bennett missed Monday's practice after injuring his ribs during Sunday's loss to the Broncos. His Tuesday return suggests he at least has a shot to suit up on Thursday, but given how the Bears have handled injuries this season, a game-time decision seems inevitable. If Bennett can't go, the emerging Zach Miller will likely take on added snaps and targets. Even if Bennett plays, it's possible he'll cede some of his usual workload to Miller.

    Bears' Martellus Bennett: No practice Monday

    Bennett (ribs) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's injury report, the Bears' official site reports. After notching two receptions (on six targets) for 26 yards in Sunday's loss to the Broncos, Bennett wasn't available to the media as he underwent an evaluation for an undetermined ailment. On Monday, it was revealed that he's tending to a rib concern, which is severe enough to result in no activity Monday. The Bears will return to practice Tuesday with a Thursday night outing on the docket in Green Bay, leaving Bennett with little time to be game-ready. If he's unable to suit up (or at all limited), Zach Miller is waiting in the wings to handle reps at tight end.

    Bears' Martellus Bennett: Dealing with ribs injury

    Bennett injured his ribs during Sunday's loss to the Broncos, according to Jeff Dickerson of ESPN. Bennett was unavailable to the media after Sunday's game while receiving treatment from team doctors. The Bears have a quick turnaround for Thursday's game against the Packers, with Zach Miller in line to see added opportunities in the event of a Bennett absence. Miller has actually been the more productive player the past three weeks, catching 10 passes for 177 yards and three touchdowns, albeit on just 13 targets.

    Bears' Martellus Bennett: 26 yards in loss

    Bennett had two catches on six targets for 26 yards during Sunday's loss to the Broncos, and he was unavailable to reporters after the game while meeting with team doctors, according to Jeff Dickerson of ESPN. It is unclear what kind of injury Bennett may have, though players are specifically not allowed to talk to the media after games if they are believed to have suffered a concussion. Bennett was on the field through the Bears' last offensive play, a failed two-point try with 24 seconds left, so it's unclear when he may have suffered an injury, if he did. Bennett has hardly been productive of late, catching five passes on nine targets for 44 yards in the last two games combined. Up next is a Week 12 trip to Lambeau Field.

    Bears' Martellus Bennett: Quiet in win over Rams

    Bennett caught all three of his targets for just 18 yards in Sunday's win over the Rams. After a strong showing in Week 10, Bennett was held in check Sunday, as fellow tight end Zach Miller had a big game. Bennett's involvement should not suffer drastically even if Miller's emergence is long-lived, and he should remain one of the most heavily-targeted Bears players in most games. Week 11 brings with it a tough home matchup against the Broncos.

    Bears' Martellus Bennett: Scores against Rams

    Bennett caught eight passes (on nine targets) for 57 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's win over the Chargers. Bennett's eight receptions only trailed teammate Alshon Jeffery and included an important one-yard touchdown reception during the second quarter. That marked Bennett's first touchdown since Week 4, and Monday served as his best overall performance since then as well. With the Bears' passing game appearing much improved this season, Bennett can now look forward to this Sunday's matchup against the Rams.

    Bears' Martellus Bennett: Quiet in loss to Vikings

    Bennett caught three of his five targets for just 32 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. A bit of a disappointing showing from the big tight end, who amassed his second-lowest yardage total of the season despite finishing second on the team in targets. Although Bennett remains one of the more heavily-targeted receiving options for the Bears, he has topped 59 receiving yards just once this season and hasn't found the end zone since Week 4. Bennett will look to get back on track against the Chargers in Week 9.

    Bears' Martellus Bennett: Snags six passes against Detroit

    Bennett caught six passes off of 11 targets for 59 yards in Sunday's loss to Detroit. Coming into Sunday's game, Bennett had 15 more targets than any other Bears receiver and owners were curious as to whether he'd be able to keep it up with the return of Alshon Jeffery. He didn't disappoint, tying Jeffery with 11 targets on Sunday. Jeffery will likely be Jay Cutler's top target for the remainder of 2015, but the team is still looking to replace Brandon Marshall's 2014 production and, with first-round pick Kevin White still sidelined, Bennett should see part of that share. Remember, offensive coordinator Adam Gase spotlighted tight ends in his offense in Denver.

    Bears TE Martellus Bennett active for Sunday

    Bears tight end Martellus Bennett (quadriceps) is active for the Week 6 game against Detroit. His availability Sunday seems to suggest the injury isn't anything serious, so it's expected he will see the majority of the tight end snaps.
