Bears’ Martellus Bennett Body Slams Teammate, Gets Suspended

The Chicago Bears have suspended Martellus Bennett for body slamming his rookie teammate Kyle Fuller in practice.

General Manager Phil Emery said that he wants to get Bennett back on the field as soon as possible.

Emery said: “This is a process that we’re working with Martelllus on. We are in contact with him. Our goal is to have Martellus back as soon as possible. He’s a loved and respected teammate and we want him back. But it’s a process that we’ll have to work with.”

Emery didn’t say when he expects Bennett to return or what Bennett will have to do to earn his spot back on the team.

Bennett said: “I come to training camp for one reason and that’s to prepare to win a championship. It’s practice. Practice is practice. I know I sound like Allen Iverson right now, but it’s practice. [Expletive] happens at practice. You learn from it. That’s why it’s practice.”

Bennett sighed a four year deal with the Chicago Bears in 2013. He ended last season with 65 receptions and 759 yards.
