Packers' Martellus Bennett won't play vs. Bears after shoulder injury

On Wednesday, the Packers cut Bennett, a former Texas A&M star, with a failure to disclose a medical condition designation. All 31 other teams have until 4 p.m. ET Thursday to submit a claim on him.
Bennett signed with the Packers as an unrestricted free agent last off-season and started seven games.
"Martellus Bennett will not practice this week, he will not be available for the game", coach Mike McCarthy said before Wednesday's practice.
Bennett posted on his social media account last month that he was contemplating retirement at the end of this season. He had 24 catches for 233 yards.
Meanwhile, a number of his now ex-teammates are wondering what went awry - and whether Bennett quit on them as soon as they lost two-time NFL MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers to an October 15 broken right collarbone.
The veteran had hinted on his Instagram Story on October 28 that he is leaning toward retiring at the end of the season after a 10-year career that included stints with the Cowboys, Giants, Bears and Patriots before landing in Green Bay. It ended Wednesday in freaky fashion, as the Packers cut the veteran tight end and set the stage for recouping some of the money they clearly feel they wasted on him. What will be interesting to see moving forward is whether or not Green Bay will look to void the remainder of Bennett's contract.
Bennett returned with the rest of the team on October 31 and took part in practice that day.
Bennett is getting different input from doctors on how to proceed with the injury after missing Monday's loss to the Lions. They gave him a $6.3 million signing bonus. The Packers had signed Bennett to a three-year, $21 million deal in March.
The Packers will look to veterans Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers to serve as the top tight ends in their offense moving forward. "So if Marty is there, great".
