Scuffle slows up Bears OTA

LAKE FOREST (CBS)—The first player “confrontation” of the summer went down Tuesday as defensive lineman Lamarr Houston and tight end Martellus Bennett exchanged words during the Bears’ fifth of 10 OTA practices.

Generally, these things aren’t a big deal, and Tuesday’s was no exception, especially because Houston and Bennett are old friends.

“It’s nothing personal,” Houston said. “Marty is a good guy. He’s a good friend of mine. I’m going to go joke with him in there after this, so everything is all good.”

Bennett wasn’t available for comment afterward, but the whole ordeal appeared to start with right tackle Jordan Mills blocking Houston during a practice rep. Houston appeared to take exception to something — possibly Mills still blocking after the whistle — and it got more heated once Bennett got involved.

“We’re just competitive guys,” Houston said. “We like to compete and we compete to win. We’re just so competitive. We’re passionate about the game, so sometimes things get a little heated out there. That’s football. We just go back to the next play and keep working.”

Coach Mark Tressman was unhappy with the Bears players “wasting time” during Tuesday’s workout.
