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.
