Packers TE Martellus Bennett ruled out Sunday against Bears

Bennett had already been ruled out by coach Mike McCarthy on Wednesday morning from playing in Sunday's game at Chicago. The Packers had signed Bennett to a three-year, $21 million deal in March.

The veteran tight end made waves last week when he indicated through his Instagram account that he was likely to retire after the 2017 season. It ended Wednesday in freaky fashion, as the Packers cut the veteran tight end and set the stage for recouping some of the money they clearly feel they wasted on him.

Bennett's time in Green Bay came to an end Wednesday, according to ESPN's Field Yates. McCarthy said last week that Bennett was still being evaluated by doctors.

He didn't play in the 30-17 loss on Monday to the Detroit Lions after being listed as doubtful for the game.

Israeli military says ready to protect Druze village in Syria
The Israeli military, which has been launching airstrikes against Syria, could be preparing to cross into its territory now. Later on, the militants also carried out an attack on units of the army and pro-government militants in the area.

Asked about his sudden desire to leave the game, Bennett was even more vague.

"The 6'6" TE struggled to adjust to the offensive scheme in Green Bay, as in seven games he only recorded 24 receptions for 233 yards and no touchdowns, and developed an issue with drops that he never seemed to recover from. That day, Bennett left the locker room telling reporters he wouldn't be talking with them because there was "nothing to talk about". All 31 other teams have until 4 p.m. ET Thursday to submit a claim on him.

Packers tight end Martellus Bennett is tackled by the Vikings' Eric Kendricks.

Martellus Bennett won't get the chance to play the Packers' remaining games this season "for you", those who made his National Football League career possible, as he wrote in a social media post last week announcing his potential retirement. "If Marty's not, the other guys are ready to go".
