Bears tight end Martellus Bennett, who caught the game-winning touchdown pass with 10 seconds left, suffered a shoulder injury in the first half of the Bears’ 31-30 win over the Vikings Sunday.
The injury occurred in the second quarter when Cutler tried to hit the tight end on a 31-yard touchdown pass. The pass went through the back of the end zone and Bennett ran into a cameraman.
“Just trying to make a play and I messed up my shoulder. I’m in a lot of pain right now, but it is what it is, gotta go back in there and finish up,” Bennett said after the game.
Not only did he finish the game, but he ended up catching seven passes and two touchdowns on the day, including the game-winner. On the final drive of the game, he caught two passes for 39 yards. The Bears said Monday they expect Bennett to be fine for Week 3.
