Martellus Bennett rejoins Bears Sunday-- Sun Aug 10 10:00 pm --
TE says he has learned his lesson
Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett rejoined teammates Sunday at Olivet Nazarene University, six days after the club levied an unspecified fine and indefinite suspension. Bennett's punishment stemmed from a fight at practice last Monday with teammate Kyle Fuller. "I think I could've handled the situation differently," Bennett said.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Bennett missed the team's first preseason game against the Eagles but is back at camp and expected to play against Jacksonville this week. Bennett is one of the key weapons in the Bears pass offense and remains a high-end TE2 in fantasy leagues.
Bears suspend TE Martellus Bennett-- Tue Aug 5 11:10 am --
Altercation during practice with rookie cornerback
Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett was fined and suspended for conduct detrimental to the team after the veteran was involved in a fight at practice Monday with rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller, general manager Phil Emery announced Tuesday. Emery did not specify the length of the suspension nor disclose the amount of the fine.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Bennett missed Tuesday's practice and it's widely believed this suspension won't affect his Week 1 status. Bennett reportedly bodyslammed Fuller to the ground and had little remorse afterwards. Bennett remains a low-end TE1.
