Martellus Bennett has torn rotator cuff, could play through it

Packers TE Martellus Bennett ruled out Sunday against Bears

Earlier this season, Bennett suggested he was considering retirement after the 2017 season.

Green Bay waived him with the designation of failure to disclose a medical condition, which they hope will help them recoup the remaining $4.2 million on his signing bonus.

However, Bennett may try to play through it, according to Rapoport. It is also worth noting that all three players were withheld from practice throughout the week. Bennett was signed as an unrestricted free agent last offseason to a three-year deal worth $21m.

If Bennett does get healthy, he proved last season he is capable of thriving in the Patriots' offense and he provides a potent threat in the red zone alongside New England's four-time Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Bennett had 24 receptions and 233 yards in the seven games he played for the Packers this season. "I don't think it's right to judge that, either", McCarthy said.

The first public hint of a shoulder injury came after Bennett returned from the bye week. "You adjust the way you do things, the way you game plan and the way you move forward".

He didn't play in the Packers' 30-17 loss on Monday to the Detroit Lions after being listed as doubtful for the game.

Bennett used his Instagram Story - the same avenue he used to post during the bye week that he was "pretty sure" he would retire after this season - to tell his side of the story.

Asked if he didn't believe Bennett was "on the boat", Richard Rodgers said, "I really can't answer that". Kendricks caught a career-high 50 passes for the Rams last season.
