Packers TE Martellus Bennett out Week 10 with shoulder injury

Bennett played only seven games with the Packers after winning a Super Bowl in New England a year ago; the Bears traded him to the Packers in March 2016. Bennett has been battling a shoulder injury recently. The Packers had signed Bennett to a three-year, $21 million deal in March.

During a recent Instagram post, Bennett hinted that he could retire at the end of this season. His 33.3 yards per game is the lowest total of his career since 2011 when he found himself behind Jason Witten on the tight end depth chart with the Dallas Cowboys.

ESPN reporter Field Yates revealed the news on Wednesday. That update turned into McCarthy ruling Bennett out this week with a shoulder injury, which quickly devolved into them parting ways over Bennett's failure to disclose his medical condition. Without Bennett on Monday night against the Lions, Kendricks had two catches for 32 yards and Rodgers one catch for 5 yards. He had recorded 24 catches over seven games in Green Bay.

Asked directly after Monday night's game whether Bennett's shoulder injury happened during that October 31 post-bye practice or before that, McCarthy cryptically answered, "Just everything as far as the medical information being gathered was post-practice Tuesday". They gave him a $6.3 million signing bonus. Said another: "It's just weird". He is the brother of the Seahawks' Michael Bennett, who has sat during the anthem.

Considering the Packers lost star QB Aaron Rodgers with a broken collarbone, Bennett wouldn't have been much of an impact player for the team down the stretch anyway.
