Martellus Bennett’s Status Probably Not Entirely About His Ribs

Brad Biggs at the Chicago Tribune answers your questions. This one is about whether tight end Martellus Bennett will be back with the Bears. The answer is telling:

“[Bennett has] been a good player for them and has been highly durable until a recent rib fracture landed him on injured reserve on Tuesday, a day after coach John Fox described him as day-to-day and two days after he finished the game against the 49ers. I’m not dismissing Bennett’s injury but it’s probably a combination of factors that led to the decision.”

The implication is, of course, that it wasn’t just the rib injury.
