Earl Bennett is expected to return for the Chicago Bears from a concussion in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Bennett has missed the last two weeks, and has yet to practice since suffering the injury in Week 13 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Bennett has been a valuable target for quarterback Jay Cutler working out of the slot. That said, he hasn't been particularly productive this season, with 23 receptions for 250 yards and one touchdown in 12 games played.
Fantasy Impact: Bennett's return will be a bigger help to the Bears than fantasy owners. The Bears need someone to take attention away from Brandon Marshall, and Bennett could prove useful working underneath coverage. He has not had 50 yards receiving or four receptions in any game this season, however, so it would be unwise to expect a break-out performance in Week 16.
