Source: Bears WR Bennett unlikely to play Sunday vs. Packers

Good thing Dane Sanzenbacher was kept.

Bears wide receiver Earl Bennett looks like he will be out against the Packers in Week three due to a torso injury, according to an NFL source.

Bennett suffered the injury in the first quarter of the Bears’ 30-13 loss in the Big Easy when safety Roman Harper popped the Vanderbilt alum in the chest with his helmet on a nine-yard completion. Cutler’s Commodore crony departed the contest, and came back to the field for a brief moment before being ruled out at after recess.

More tests will be appointed, as the diagnosis for Bennett has brightened the past 48 hours.

Who knows, maybe fragile/out-of-shape Roy Williams (groin) will return in time for Green Bay on Sunday.
