Bears receiver Earl Bennett has left Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks because of a concussion.
Bennett got hit hard in the closing seconds of the first half, after Steven Haushka kicked a field goal to put Seattle ahead 10-7. Bennett fielded the kickoff and was drilled by Jeron Johnson. He did not come out for the second half.
Chicago safety Chris Conte was also ruled out in the third quarter with an illness.
