Bennett turned in a limited practice Tuesday, likely in order to test out his injured ribs, but the
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 Thursday, but given how the
Martellus Bennett (ribs) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's injury report, the Chicago 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.
Bennett was unavailable to the media after Sunday's game while receiving treatment from team doctors. The
Martellus 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 Chicago 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.
