And Now Martellus Bennett is Injured

It’s been quite a season for Green Bay Packers tight end Martellus Bennett thus far. Unfortunately, I don’t mean that in a good way.

Bennett, who has struggled with drops, and announced plans to retire after the season is now hurt.

Bennett was out of practice late in the week with an injured shoulder. It appears the injury may be somewhat serious, as Bennett was seeking multiple opinions on it.

“We’re waiting on some information,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “He’s still taking a visit or two. Hopefully, we’ll have more information today.”

At best, Bennett will miss Monday night’s game against Detroit, although a lengthier absence may follow.

That will move Lance Kendricks into a starting roll. Kendricks has caught just six balls for 94 yards on the season. However, he’s made plays when given the opportunity. The Packers won’t really miss anything in that part of the game.

The real question is can the team get Brett Hundley going. If not, it doesn’t matter who’s playing tight end.

    Addition by subtraction. He’s been a great player but not this year. Kendricks has potential. And he hangs onto the ball.

    Lions LBs are vulnerable to RB screens and passes to the TE. The key to victory for the Packers right there. That and running to the outside.

    Kind of old news, but regardless….

    Bennett was M I A at Thursdays practice, then this mysterious injury pops up, which apparently happened Tuesday, but wasn’t listed .

    It’s been “alleged” that the Packers aren’t happy with Bennetts retirement comments, citing the focus the team needs at this time.

    It should be noted that since last week, Bennett has refused to talk to the media. But that’s what piece of shits do.

    I wouldn’t be shocked if the Packers place him on I R.

    Also, Kevin King injured his shoulder at the final walk thru practice. Yes, you read that right.

      Check that…King (back) not shoulder, but playing.

    The team and the fans have to feel jobbed by this social justice warrior. Thanks Ted, you could have kept Jared Cook. Oh well, at least he got Aaron to channel his inner-Berkley and get down about the malfeasances suffered by brother Michael.
