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 likely that this is related to the rib issue. 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 NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Martellus 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 Chicago 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.
Martellus 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 Chicago 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.

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.
Martellus Bennett (ribs) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
The Chicago 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.
