Trestman told reporters Wednesday that Melton should be ready to go by early next week.
Bennett is slightly more behind, but he has been spotted wearing a helmet at practice.
Melton, a defensive tackle, left the Bears' first preseason game with the injury. He's playing under the team's franchise tag, and wasn't expected to return to game action until the regular season.
Bennett, a wide receiver left practice August 3rd, before being diagnosed with a concussion of his own.
Both players appear to be in line to return to action for the Bears' first regular season game, September 8th against the Cincinnati Bengals.
