Patriots claim TE Bennett off waivers

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The New England Patriots claimed tight end Martellus Bennett off waivers on Thursday, a day after he was cut by the Green Bay Packers for "failing to disclose a physical condition."

He didn't play in the Packers' 30-17 loss on Monday to the Detroit Lions after being listed as doubtful for the game.

The 30-year-old then sat out practice Wednesday and was listed as having a shoulder injury as Green Bay began preparations for its game Sunday at Chicago.
