FOXBOROUGH — Martellus Bennett was out at practice for the Patriots Friday, an indication that he passed his physical with the team.
Wearing his old No. 88, Bennett warmed up on the practice field with the rest of his new teammates. The Patriots claimed Bennett off waivers Thursday following his release by the Packers.
Bennett wasn’t doing anything strenuous during the portion of practice open to reporters, but it was notable to see him out on the field after Green Bay waived him with the designation that he did not report a medical condition, which the NFL Network is reporting is a torn rotator cuff.
It was also notable for the contrast with what Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters in Green Bay Friday about the last conversation he’d had with Bennett.
“The last medical conversation I was involved with, they were talking about scheduling surgery,” McCarthy said.
Bennett was the new addition, but the same group of three players remained absent: receiver Chris Hogan (shoulder), right tackle Marcus Cannon (ankle), and defensive tackle Malcom Brown (ankle). That trio has not practiced since the bye week, making them unlikely to play Sunday night against Denver.
