Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett has rejoined the team after being suspended for five days for conduct detrimental to the team.
Bennett was suspended for fighting rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller, slamming the first-round draft pick to the ground.
Bennett had a discussion with coach Marc Trestman before being reinstated.
“Everything in life is about learning lessons," Bennett told Chicago reporters. "Whatever situation you’re going on through life, you always learn from it. Whether it’s good or bad, there’s always a lesson or moral to the story. I think I could have handled the situation differently. We could talk about it right now, but, really, any way differently from what I did.”

Assuming there are no further flare-ups, the Bears should have their 65-catch tight end in the lineup come September while also making Trestman’s point about the need to be trusting and respectful of your teammates.
