Martellus Bennett's season is over.

In a shocking move, the Bears placed the tight end on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday afternoon:

 

 

 

Bennett has 53 catches for 439 yards and three touchdowns this season.

 

He missed the Bears' win over the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving night with a rib injury, but played Sunday against the Niners, catching three of his four targets for 14 yards.

Housler, 27, has 106 career receptions, but only one TD in five seasons and has caught just one pass this season after managing just nine receptions with the Cardinals in 2014.
