Martellus Bennett active for Patriots, Mike Gillislee sits out

AP

Tight end Martellus Bennett wanted to have shoulder surgery when he was playing for the Packers, but he’s well enough to play now that he’s a member of the Patriots.

Green Bay waived Bennett with a failure to disclose injury designation this week, which led to an angry response from Bennett alleging the Packers knew about his injury all along and didn’t stop the Patriots from bringing back a key player from last year’s team. Bennett was listed as questionable because of the shoulder, but is active and joins Rob Gronkowski, Dwayne Allen and Jacob Hollister at tight end in Denver on Sunday night.

Running back Mike Gillislee is a healthy scratch for New England. Defensive tackle Malcom Brown, wide receiver Chris Hogan and tackle Marcus Cannon were ruled out during the week while cornerback Eric Rowe remains out after being listed as questionable on Friday. The Patriots will have cornerback Stephon Gilmore in the lineup for the first time since Week Five.

Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders was also listed as questionable, but is active for the Broncos.

    The Patri*ts don’t cheat… said no one ever. You can’t tell me this wasn’t a pre-arranged reunion between Bennett and the Patri*ts.

    what i dont understand from you haters is the logic applied. Think about it, he passed THROUGH WAIVERS. if ANY TEAM wanted to hinder our playoff chances, ( BUF, MIA,) or others, they could have and should have claimed him. I have never understood why people say the pats planned this. Yeah, the pats planned for Bennett to get passed over by 30 teams. If you can find evidence of that collusison to allow us to get him back, please send all applicable info to the NFL League offices.

    Yeah, BB called up Bennett and instructed him on how to get released, then Jedi mind tricked 29 other teams in the league to NOT claim him on waivers.

    I can taste your tears of frustration and smell your essence of fear from here………

    Waaahhhhh waaahhhhhhh

  5. When he first signed with GB, I was skeptical. Now i see that a leopard cannot change his spots. This guy is a liar and a turd, just like his brother.

  6. I really didn’t put much thought into the situation until I saw he decided to suit up tonight. Now I realize the Packers are probably “mostly” right in this instance. He throws the Packers doctor under the bus for making it seem like he could play through the injury. Clearly the Patriots doctor felt the same way. When he was with the Packers, he was going to have surgery and retire after the season. With the Patriots is is able to play right away.

    Put simply, he quit on the Packers. It really shows a persons character to quit on all his teammates, the organization, and their fans.

    Truthfully, I hope the Packers win their appeal and he doesn’t get any money since he did absolutely nothing for them and in the end quit.
