Martellus, Tell Us
San Antonio --- Training camp often know to show distractions for an NFL team before the season
Martellus Bennett not even on the field for the first couple of days but still making headlines with what they're calling a non-football related injury.
Here's how he explains what happened, "just running at the ranch. Jump up, jumping to catch a jump ball and I rolled my ankle. It's a rolled ankle sprain."
"Who were you running around with?" a reporter asked. "Some friends. Some friends on the team," Bennett said.
A lot expected from Bennett around this time last year, he was getting more attention for his antics off the field though including marty b tv, a rap video and now even nude pictures of him are surfacing.
On the field, the 23-year-old didn't get a single touchdown; a lot different from his rookie year when he had four.
Bennett says he's cutting down on the funny stuff now, just sticking to football.
"No videos. No u-stream no nothing this year. Just football," he says. He also addressed criticism over the antics, "I really don't care personally, they can say what they want to say. It doesn't really bother me what anyone says about me. It never has. I continue to do what I do, have fun."
The Cowboys addressed the nude pictures of Martellus Bennett with this statement:

We discussed this matter today with Martellus and will address it further on an internal basis.
