New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett (knee) was limited at Giants practice Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Editor's Update: New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett was limited in practice on Thursday. Bennett participated in some drills, according to coach Tom Coughlin, after being seen by reporters early in practice doing light work on the side with trainers. Bennett has a hyperextended knee, which he injured last week against the Cleveland Browns. Bennett said earlier this week that he plans to play in Week 6 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: Beat writers say Bennett appeared to look fine running on Thursday, so it's not an immediate concern that he didn't practice in full. Bennett was held out of practice on Wednesday. Fantasy owners should know more about his status on Friday but Bennett did play though the injury against the Browns. If he is active on Sunday, Bennett is a fringe No. 1 tight end against a tough San Francisco defense.
