Martellus Bennett returned on Sunday from nearly a week on suspension and a fine stemming from an incident last Monday when he slammed rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller to the ground after a play in practice.
The Bears tight end met with team officials after that, has talked with coach Marc Trestman repeatedly over the past week, and comes back with some lessons learned, on the field and perhaps off it as well.
“I think I could have handled the situation differently,” Bennett said, specifically, “any way differently than what I did.”
Whether he was speaking of his dust-up with Fuller or if there were issues with how he took any reprimand from coaches or management wasn’t apparent. Regardless, when practice opens at 3 p.m. in Sunday, Bennett will have made some changes.
