Report: Earl Bennett accepted pay cut


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

He is listed as the third wide receiver on the depth chart behind Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, though the coaching staff is also reportedly enamored with rookie Marquess Wilson.

Earl Bennett, Henry Melton cleared


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2013) Bears No. 3 wideout Earl Bennett and defensive tackle Henry Melton, who were out with concussions, practiced Monday and have been cleared to play against the Bengals, reports ESPN.com. But Melton appears to have a better chance of suiting up.

Coach Marc Trestman said conditioning concerns might keep Bennett out.

“We’ll see how he looks during the course of the week," Trestman said. "He ran well today. He was involved in reps. Obviously he hasn’t had the practice time or the conditioning level right now. So it’s plausible [that Bennett won’t play]. I don’t want to say unlikely because I don’t know how the week’s going to go."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
