NFC Notes: Bears, Giants, Packers, Vikings





Friday morning, a report surfaced that the Packers elected to waive TE Martellus Bennett because of a torn rotator cuff (NFLTR).

Packers HC Mike McCarthy wouldn’t get into specifics as to why they elected to move on from Bennett, but he confirmed that they discussed him undergoing surgery earlier in the week.

“I’m not going to get into the Patriots claiming Marty, I’ll just reiterate what I said yesterday: I just know what the facts are and how the timeline came about,” McCarthy said, via “I talked to him Tuesday [following the bye week] after practice and he a shoulder concern injury. I advised him to get the second opinions. He did that and he went to a number of them. The last medical conversation I was involved with in regards to Marty, they were talking about scheduling surgery. After that, then you have the termination and then the claim. I really don’t have any comments on that. I’ve answered the question for the last time, respectfully.”
