Chicago Bears coach Marc Trestman cut practice short Monday following a heated, physical altercation between veteran tight end Martellus Bennett and first-round draft choice Kyle Fuller during a red-zone drill. The issue arose when Fuller attempted to strip the football away from Bennett after the tight end made a catch close to the line of scrimmage. Instead of knocking the ball loose, Fuller instead hooked the front of Bennett's shoulder pads which caused Bennett to fall to the ground. Bennett immediately got to his feet and attacked Fuller and slammed the first-year cornerback to the ground. It took several minutes for Bennett to calm down as multiple teammates such as Matt Forte and Lamarr Houston tried to intervene. Bennett even got into a heated shouting match with wide receiver Brandon Marshall before order was finally restored. "I come to training camp for one reason and that's to prepare to win a championship," Bennett said later at lunch. "I play hard and go hard every single day. I'm probably one of the most violent people on the field. That's just my style of play. I'm going to continue to play the same way I always play. That's what I'm here for.
