Bears tight end Martellus Bennett wasn’t at practice today, but it wasn’t because of any injury.
According to John Mullin of CSNChicago.com, General Manager Phil Emery said Bennett was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team.
Emery said the decision was made last night, after Bennett was involved in a brawl with teammate Kyle Fuller in practice yesterday. He reportedly argued with wide receiver Brandon Marshall for several minutes after slamming Fuller to the turf.
The fine and unspecified suspension is unusual for a training camp practice scuffle, which tells you Bennett must have taken it to another level at some point.
UPDATE 11:20 a.m. ET: Yep, this video of the incident makes it pretty clear that Bennett was out of line, and could have injured a teammate with a response better suited to a wrestling ring.
