The season is over for Martellus Bennett. Two weeks into his return to New England, the veteran tight end is being placed on injured reserve by the Patriots, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on Monday. The decision comes one day after Bennett was inactive for the team's 35-17 win over Miami due to shoulder and hamstring injuries. Rapoport was told the move has more to do with the veteran's banged-up hamstring, but the early wrap to his season will give Bennett the chance to finally undergo shoulder surgery.
