The Bears has to play without two starters for much of their game Sunday against Seattle Vikings. Wide receiver Earl Bennett suffered concussion, while free safety Chris Conte left with the flu.

Bennett had a 12-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter. But he was flipped into the end zone by Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner on the play and landed on his head.

Bennett remained in the game, dropping a potential 63-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jay Cutler. Bennett also had a punt return for six yards.

It was announced in the third quarter that Bennett was being evaluated for a concussion. He was officially ruled out with a concussion not long after that.

The loss of Bennett comes at a tough time for the Bears with Alshon Jeffery (knee) and Devin Hester (concussion) already missing the game against the Seahawks.

Conte started the game, but was soon replaced by veteran Craig Steltz because of an illness. Conte has started every game this season.
