    Might be a bit over played since he stayed in the game and finished it.

    Give him a few days off practice to rest it up and he should be okay. His staying in the game gives me hopes that it is nothing serious. Though, in game, adrenalin rushes might have kept him going.

    He did a helluva lot more than just stay in the game. I'm thinking he'll be fine. Go home and get some special attention from mama, and you'll feel better.

    He was hurting if you look at him after he caught the winning TD he was trying to avoid the guys from jumping on his injured shoulder side during the celebration. Go to highlights on Bears web site and you can see him guard that shoulder. He said post game its what TE do they suck up the pain and you play through it that's because he doesn't like to miss games, man I'm really starting to like this guy. I thought these type of football players were going the way of the dodo bird.

    Never like hearing a player has anything physically "messed up" but he finished so I'm hoping he just needs RICE.

    I saw his ankle hit the camera, and I was afraid he did some damage there. Hopefully the shoulder is just a bruise.

    That is some sad news. Bennett have really proved he was the risk signing worth! Just like the Marshall trade this was high risk high reward kind of signing. So far he has done more than living up to my expectations.. How nice is it to have a legit TE that knows how to catch a ball and a coach that knows how to use him?

    I really hope all he needs is a few days of rest, so far he has been such an importen player and it would suck if he can't play against Steelers..
