Martellus Bennett is doubtful for Monday night

Getty Images

If Packers tight end Martellus Bennett intends to retire after the season, he’ll likely be playing one less game between now and the end of the year.

Bennett, who didn’t practice all week, is listed as doubtful for Monday night’s game against the Lions.

It’s unclear how the injury happened. The Packers were off in Week Eight, and there was no obvious injury in Week Seven.

Also doubtful for the game are linebacker Ahmad Brooks (back) and defensive lineman Quinton Dial (chest). Linebacker Joe Thomas (ankle) is out, cornerback Damarious Randall (hamstring/illness) is questionable, and guard Lane Taylor (ankle) is questionable.

Bennett declined to talk to reporters this week about his social-media statement regarding a plan to retire. He’d owe the Packers $4.2 million in signing-bonus money if he proceeds.

    You can’t make this stuff up. If you could you would be the greatest comedian. What a team.

  2. His feelings & outlook on playing for that God forsaken “team” can never heal the same. Kinda like collar bones.

    You realize their Tight End was just listed on an injury report, right?
    There’s really nothing all that comical about it.
    In fact, it’s barely news breaking.
    I’m really not sure why you’re so amazed by this, as it happens to every team.

    It’s not like Lambeau Field collapsed and they had to play a home game in Detroit or something.
    Nobody’s trying to pass their drug tests with whizzinators.
    Also, this team made it through the bye week without chartering a boat full of strippers and sexually harassing the crew.
    skoLOL!

  4. i was hoping theyd find a way to ship him off before the deadline… wouldve been satisfied with a conditional 7th rounder…

    what a waste this guy has been…

  5. NFL is funny. Team loses its starting QB and then it’s receiving core usually follows suite. Pretty soon, half the team goes on IR and fans are left watching absolute trash to end their season.

  6. You know what else is doubtful? The Vikings ever winning a SB…haha you can’t make this stuff up when it’s the truth.

  7. It’s funny how you read a story on a Packers thread and 80% of the comments are from Vikings fans. I get it you’re all puffing your chest out because this is the best chance you’re team is going to have in a while to win and Packer fans including me are down in the dumps because the Packers chances to win anything this year really suck. But the thing that really made me laugh and realize how much us Packer fans own a lot of space in Viking fans heads is when I read a 49ers article about Datone Jones and over 50% of the comments on that thread was from Viking fans ripping on the Packers. Then the other day there’s Viking fans pulling up comments from articles written in March and other researching ticket prices in Madison newspapers and Craig’s List. REALLY? You all need some professional help, there are more important things in life. But if you don’t get help I hope all us Packer fans can get comfortable living in your heads.

    Barney fans laughing at injured players is commonplace.
    Please, try something more original. You know, like maybe a little class.

  9. Well he did say that after the next 8 games he was retiring, but there were 9 left at the time. Maybe he planned an extended bye week all along?

    As with Revis Belichick nailed this one. Marty retired after he won his ring.
    =====================================================
    Incorrect. Belichick wanted Bennett back and the Patriots made a competitive offer. Bennett wanted to be the #1 tight end and Green Bay’s offer was a bit better. After seeing what Belichick IS wasting his money on in Dwayne Allen, I would take Marty back in a minute.

    How many Bridgewater, Bradford and AP injury posts have you made over the past 18 months and none of them have gone on a whinny deceitful PR tour about it. Don’t lie to yourself about how much class you have.

  12. Great news now mike m will be forced to use kendricks who can catch and has speed. Was a new and novel idea for the packers. Hopefully he will expose mm plays ted favorite picks and not the best talent aka jones at running back.

  13. Marty is a disappointment. We couldn’t sufficiently brain wash him.

  14. Hw was probably scolded for being the only team member taking a knee like his piss ant troublemaking brother. This guy is done, put a fork in him. He is the new definition of bum.

  15. It is nice, though, that we again have some Packers news after our bye instead of seeing all the winning news about those Vikings. Even if our Packers news is always terrible.

    I challenge you to find one. Any one.
    One single post where I’ve ridiculed any NFL player because of an injury.
    Don’t just talk crap about someone’s character without backing it up.
    Find it.

  17. I am sure the Lions are hoping this report is erroneous and that Bennett actually plays Monday night.

  18. bennett is sharpening that knife that’ll be thrusted & twisted in the wheel of cheese. After he’s cleaned his locker out, of course.

  19. Let him retire. He will get lump-into the forgotten players of the nfl (caps not forgotten). Bennett’ & his brother (Seahawks fan since ’79) are a cancer on the sport. NOTICE I DIDN’T say league…

    Let him &his brother go. To quote the, “Eagles”, “Take the Money and Run!” No HOF, no further mention. Good-bye, good riddance.

  20. It’s obvious the trolls need to feel close to the Packers. Their mid-season success is scaring them. It’s so unfamiliar, they don’t know what to do or how to handle it. The Packers give them a sense of security, they know they can learn from us, so they keep coming back with psychotic regularity. They love/hate us.

    The vibe they’re sending feels something like this:

    “Sometimes I miss you so much I can hardly stand it. I wish I knew how to quit you.”

    Sorry. You guys are on your own.

    Posting facts and actually discussing football is a welcome thing in a comment section overrun with giddy Viking fans who are seizing the moment due to an injury.

    I believe Marty and Aaron would have done well together as the year progressed. I can Understand the criticism on how it started out, but let’s remember our genius coach in GB gives his starting QB 3 snaps in every preseason game due to fear and doesn’t apparently believe in creating chemistry.

    If McCarthy can’t win without Rodgers going forward, then he should be coordinating somewhere else next year for the ineptitude and for keeping the d coordinator far too long.

    the hypicroacy of your “classy posts” is astounding. Look through any Viking article and we will find your classiness on display bear the beginning of any comment section.

    Listen, I get it. I honestly do.
    I totally understand the frustration and bitterness you Barneys must feel after 65 years of bad/mediocre football.

    And I realize that all of the glee you, and your ilk, displayed when Rodgers was seriously hurt, was just a longstanding, jealous, knee jerk reaction after having that QB pummel your favorite team all these years.
    It was sad and pathetic, but understandable. I guess.

    You Barneys lash out like spoiled children craving attention. Any attention.
    Even if it happens to be negative.
    Anything to have someone pay attention to you.
    That’s exactly what children do.

    But please, try and relish your own team’s accomplishments. (what little there’s been)
    Rather than wallow in another’s early season misfortune.
    Because trust me, it isn’t going to last.
    And it might just end earlier than you think.

    Sorry Pastabelly but you’re simply way off – Bennett wanted a big SB-premium payday and Packers were offering a $21M 3yr deal whereas Belichick was only offering a 1yr $6.75M deal. Bennett walked and, as usual, Belichick was right.

    Kind of nit-picking here.

    6.75 mil vs 7 mil per year?

    When you have Gronk I can see why you want a good backup (guy gets banged up every year seems) and it was good business for the Pats to only offer one year. The Packers wanted an upgrade and threw more years on the table for what looked like a great addition to the offense.

    Obviously things aren’t really working according to plan, but as in previous posts I have a lot of disdain for some of the current Packer coaching staff philosophy’s of not playing your starters in the preseason. 3 snaps to not playing at all for your qb and it seems like it’s mid season before things start clicking. Bennett may have looked totally different by mid season.

    But hey, he’s a successful coach in this league.

    Bottom line, the Packers aren’t very good without Rodgers but the rest of these teams are so bad they might still win the division.

    —————

    Agreed. Not currently a good division. Especially with the best player in it injured. I mean the Vikings tried to make a game of it with the browns until they laid down in the 2nd half. That’s currently the best team!?!?

  27. Waffle
    ——
    Oh, I’m thoroughly enjoying this season. I am going to enjoy our 2nd division title in the last 3 years… our upcomming 4th victory out of the last 5 against the GG Peckers. Enjoy your past because outside of Rodgers… GG have one of the worst rosters in the league with an overmmatched coach.

  28. It’s been reported that he has developed a case of MPH and the Packers have referred him to Dr Massengil for treatment of cramps

  29. You poor sorry Packederms, lost season, your pompous q-hole quarterback had his brittle collarbone snapped like a pretzel braid, and you have nothing to look forward to. It must be just a sickening feeling for you, hard to even come on PFT when you know things are soooo hopeless.

  30. Martellus Bennett is doubtful for Monday night

    To be fair, the entire packers organization is doubtful for Monday night as well as the rest of the season.

    Carry on…

  31. Now that the Vikings are in the drivers seat in the North Division, anything less than a SuperBowl victory is a massive choke-job (their rules.)

    Don’t forget that.

    …..

    im not a viking fan so i dont know what their “rules” are. but that wouldnt be a choke-job. see a choke-job would be losing a game you should win or are winning. no one really expects the viking to win let alone make the SB. Blair Walsh would be an example of a choke. But more epic examples are 4th and 26, Favre int v giants, 15-1, kap running wild 2x, larry fitz, atlanta and the granddaddy of them all: the 2014 NFC Choke-ionship game.

    but if you wanna say anything less than a SB victory is a choke-job in your little world, by all means go ahead. we all know your little world is already full of delusion.

    I don’t care that you’re not a Viking fan. You’ve told us 1,000 tines. You’re just a hater without the cahonas to disclose your team. But if you’re going to troll the Packers and Vikings, you should at least pay attention. It’s not my “little world.” It’s clearly theirs. They made the rules. The Packers have been huge postseason underdogs, had no business being there, went much further than expected, lost on the road, in overtime. But to a Viking fan, that’s choking and they’ve said so many times. The Vikings have the all-time NFL record for postseason losses and the all-time NFL record for one-and-done postseason appearances, and they’re calling us out?

    Please. Let’s just keep it simple by using their own words against them and see where it takes us, shall we? You really don’t need to get involved.

  34. keep posting your drivel stella. it speaks volumes.

    plus ive disclosed my team many times….not my fault you dont have the know how to search.

  36. Yes the Vikings look ok right now, and do you know what you do not see? Hashtags with the Super Bowl city. You do not see fans cheering executives talking about the Super Bowl. That behavior is for one and only only delusional self congratulatory fan base. And that is why anything less than a Super Bowl for them is fun fun funny.

    I’m glad you feel that way, because now that the Vikings are “in control,” if they don’t win the SuperBowl, it’s a full-on choke-job and I’ll never let you forget it. This is your chance to see just how easy it is to win a SuperBowl.

    Do you mean crying like Packer fans have been crying the past 3 weeks? What are you going to predicate that we will run and hide next?

  43. Without the Packers neither of you would have a life. You both should be very grateful for the Packers. They’ve given you a reason to wake up each day.

  44. C’mon Packer fans, aren’t you undercooking this just a little? This guy was the first name mentioned by endless writers making Packer/SB predictions since he was signed. A real pro goes all out, good or bad. GB has players who have done that, what makes you think this guy would?

    For the Vikings there’s nothing to celebrate. Just beat Washington. Green Bay has its own problems.

    After this rant, I don’t ever expect to see you post on a Viking thread again – if you have any integrity at all.

    Which means that you will be posting – because you have no integrity.

    It’s people like you that have turned people off to the Packers. I actually used to cheer for the Packers when they weren’t playing the Vikings. Of course, that was before I lived in Wisconsin and got to meet real live Packer fans like you.

    Now, I can’t even cheer for the Packers when it would help the Vikings anymore.

    Go Lions!

    Bsd signing for the Packers. Rodgers injury is the biggest factor in that.

    Belichick was right?.. Sure, more often than not. But funny thing, Bennetts replacement is catchless in 8 games and 4 starts……..

    Gronk being healthy doesn’t really help the backup TE’s stats, but I don’t think too many Patriot fans are complaining.
