    Henry Melton and Earl Bennett both practiced Monday at Halas Hall and could be on the field for Sunday’s season opener after each missing nearly a month with a concussion.

    Melton, a Pro Bowl defensive tackle, is a little further along in the process but Bennett said he has been symptom-free for “a couple days now.â€

    Melton was injured in the preseason opener Aug. 9 at Carolina when he was blocked by Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams. Bennett suffered a big collision in training camp on Aug. 2 and that followed a concussion he suffered in December that kept him out of two games.

    “Feels good to get out here, run around today and catch some balls, get back in the groove of things,†said Bennett, who indicated he was plagued by headaches and difficulty sleeping as he recovered from the concussion.

    He said the symptoms were “lingering a bit longer than usual, than I expected, but those things, you just have to wait them out and let them clear.â€

    “I just wanted to make sure that everything was all right,†Bennett said. “I saw several specialists and they reassured me that everything’s all right, I’ll be fine and ... just get back in the groove of things, get my wind back up, get back in the huddle and get ready to play this week.â€
