BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) - Tight end Martellus Bennett has been suspended indefinitely by the Bears after an altercation in practice the day before.
General manager Phil Emery says the team ''made a decision to fine and suspend Martellus Bennett for an undetermined length of time,'' though he wouldn't specify the amount of the fine.
On Monday, Bennett was taken to the ground Monday with a grab to the shoulder by rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller. The play occurred during a full-pad scrimmage when players are not supposed to be taken to the ground. Bennett responded by getting up, grabbing the first-round draft pick and slamming him to the ground.
Emery wouldn't go into specifics about why the decision was made, saying only that Bennett ''was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team.''
