Packers TE Martellus Bennett out Week 10 with shoulder injury

Martellus Bennett is going to miss his second-consecutive game.

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said that the tight end won’t play in Week 10 versus the Chicago Bears, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Bennett is still hampered with a shoulder injury. He’s scheduled to get his shoulder examined further.

The veteran tight end didn’t practice last week and was properly inactive for Week 9.

Tight ends Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers will both see action in Bennett’s absence.

Bennett’s had a quiet season in his first year in Green Bay. The 10-year tight end has 24 catches for 233 and no touchdowns in seven games.

The 2017 season could be Bennett’s last. He is leaning toward retirement at the conclusion of this year.

“After conversations with my family, I’m pretty sure these next eight games will be the conclusion of my NFL career,” Bennett wrote on social media. “To everyone that has poured themselves and time into my life and career. These next games are for you. Thank you.”

Bennett’s recorded 427 catches for 4,520 yards to go with 30 touchdowns in his career in which he’s played for the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Chicago Bears, New England Patriots and Packers.
