    Bears place TE Martellus Bennett on injured reserve

    Bears tight end Martellus Bennett (ribs) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday. Unable to play through a rib injury on Thanksgiving, Bennett then returned for Sunday's loss to the 49ers, catching three passes for 14 yards on four targets. He actually wasn't listed on the injury report last week, but it seems unlikely that this would be unrelated to the rib issue from a couple weeks ago. Zach Miller is now set to serve as Chicago's top tight end, with Khari Lee and Rob Housler providing depth. Bennett should be fine for offseason activities, as he's likely just dealing with broken ribs, according to's Ian Rapoport.

    Bears' Martellus Bennett: Quiet in return from injury

    Bennett caught three of four targets for just 14 yards in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. The veteran managed his lowest yardage output of the season in his return from a one-week injury absence, although his efforts mirrored the underachievement of the rest of the Bears offense Sunday. Bennett has struggled to replicate his career year from 2014, and he has found the going especially tough since the bye, as he is averaging fewer than 4 catches and 33 receiving yards per game. Another week removed form his injury, Bennett will look to step it up against the Redskins next Sunday.

    Bears' Martellus Bennett: Active for Sunday's game

    Bennett (ribs) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports. After logging full participation in each of the Bears' three practices during the week, Bennett's status for Sunday's game was never in much peril. While he's ostensibly healthy enough to see a high snap count, Bennett's seen his primacy in the passing game decline of late with the emergence of backup tight end Zach Miller. In the last four weeks, Bennett has recorded a modest 16 catches, 133 yards, and one touchdown.

    Bears' Martellus Bennett: Listed as probable for Sunday

    Bennett (ribs) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, CSN Chicago's Chris Boden reports. A full practice participant throughout the week, Bennett is ready to return from a one-game absence for a favorable matchup with the 49ers' leaky defense. He could also see an extra target or two if No. 2 tight end Zach Miller (ribs) is unable to play.

    Bears' Martellus Bennett: Full practice Wednesday

    Bennett (ribs) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The Bears exercised caution on a short week in advance of last Thursday's win at Green Bay, holding Bennett out as a result of a rib injury sustained the previous Sunday. With a full return to practice Wednesday, though, he's on pace to return for this Sunday's game against the 49ers, barring a setback.

    Bears' Martellus Bennett: Present for Monday's workout

    Bennett (ribs) was present for the open portion of Monday's practice, the Chicago Tribune reports. Bennett was inactive for this past Thursday's game against the Packers, but his presence at practice Monday would appear to bode well for the tight end's chances of returning to action this Sunday against the 49ers.

    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.
