By golly, if you like injury news, you are following the right football team!
Last week, tight end Martellus Bennett went on the shelf with mysterious shoulder injury. He was said to be seeking multiple opinions, which is never what you want to hear about an injured player. It usually means the guy is screwed for a good while and probably needs surgery.
What do we know this week?
Not much more, other than Bennett won’t practice and has been ruled out for Sunday’s game already.
Where is Bennett? Apparently still seeking opinions.

We’ve said it before. It has been a disappointing first season for Bennett with the Green Bay Packers. Twenty four catches, 233 yards, no touchdowns, plenty of drops.
Not exactly the field-stretching option Mike McCarthy had been pining for.
This is starting to smell like another injured reserve situation. And that would make for an even more disappointing finish to what might be Bennett’s only season with the Packers.
They just released mr fist in the air… Now time to build your brand elsewhere
Well, this shit happens from time to time with free agents. I remember when packers fans were begging for the team to sign Ladarious Green. How did that move pan out for the steelers?
And he gone.
BREAKING NEWS: According to NFL Network, the Packers have just cut Martellus Bennett. Meanwhile, Jared Cook is on pace for 70 grabs and 900 yards for Oakland. Ted the Terrible, you have screwed us once again!
Hindsight is 20/20. But you knew this was coming all along! Why didn’t you warn us asshole! Sheesh. Cook’s contributions are definitely paramount to that teams successful record right now…..
This is the only time i didn’t mind McCarthy lying to us.
Good riddance mofo.
