Melton, Bennett expect to be ready for opener
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP)
Out since the first preseason game, Melton said Monday he expects to suit up against the Cincinnati Bengals. So did Bennett, who was injured early in training camp.
Coach Marc Trestman said it's ''plausible'' Bennett could miss the opener. He said that will depend on ''how the rest of the week goes.''
He also said linebacker D.J. Williams remains day to day with a calf injury and that the Bears will see how he practices Wednesday and Thursday before deciding if he'll play this week.
