Martellus Bennett has played through a lot this season, not missing a single game, and now we know what he’s been dealing with.

According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Bennett has played this season with a cracked bone and bone chips in his ankle. The report also adds he will likely need surgery after the season.

Bennett was on the injury report every week with an ankle injury since Week 5, but came off last week prior to the divisional round. He was back on it this week with a knee injury suffered against the Texans.

Tom Brady noted his toughness and ability to play through pain earlier in the season.

“He’s been great,” Brady said in late November. “He’s been so productive for us and I really enjoy playing with him. You talk about a guy that’s been out at practice every day. I mean, he’s fought through a lot of stuff over the course of the year to be out there, trying to get better and improve. I think it shows a lot of mental toughness but it’s showing up with his ability to produce on the field.”

Bennett will be an unrestricted free agent after this season.
