Martellus Bennett may play through torn rotator cuff

  • Green Bay Packers tight end Martellus Bennett celebrates after making a pass reception during the first half of an NFL football game against the New Orleans Saints Sunday Oct. 22 2017 in Green Bay Wis

Prior to his release, Bennett also tweeted that this season might be his final in the NFL.

He opted to have surgery, but said Packers team doctor Patrick McKenzie made him feel uncomfortable when they discussed the injury.

Bennett practiced with the Patriots on Friday but then launched into tirade on Instagram against the team that cut him with an injury designation earlier this week.


On Friday, Bennett was practicing with the Patriots. Bennett was signed as an unrestricted free agent last offseason to a three-year deal worth $21m. While he is fourth on the team with 24 receptions for 233 yards, his biggest contributions came in the run game.

Martellus Bennett is returning to the New England Patriots. "I don't think it's right to judge that, either", McCarthy said. "You look at the adjustment you make with Aaron lost at quarterback and having three veteran tight ends on a roster, now you're down to two".

He was added to the injury report with a shoulder injury after the Packers' recent bye week. After a day off Wednesday, Bennett did not participate in the practice the rest of the week and was inactive for Monday night's loss against Detroit because of a shoulder injury. "You adjust the way you do things, the way you game plan and the way you move forward". And because he's considering retiring after the season, he may not suit up for another game in the NFL. Everything leading up to that, I can't really comment on it. Bennett caught 55 passes for 701 yards and had a career-high seven touchdowns on his way to earning a Super Bowl ring. He has yet to catch a pass this season.
