Bennett was on the field for 64 of the Patriots' 69 snaps on offense in Saturday's 34-16 playoff win over the Texans, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. The tight end hauled in one of his four targets in the game for four yards. Per the Boston Herald, Bennett -- who has battled through ankle and shoulder issues this season -- noted after Saturday's contest that he was fine after appearing to tweak his left knee in the fourth quarter. We'll have to see if the tight end's practice participation in advance of the AFC Championship game is impacted, but Bennett plans to continue to tough things out next weekend. "I've been fighting through (injuries) the whole year," said Bennett. "I'm not going to stop now. I'm getting too close to what my goal is in life."
Bennett (ankle/shoulder) caught three of his five targets for 33 yards and a TD in Sunday's 35-14 win over the Dolphins. Bennett has been an injury report regular since hurting his ankle back in Week 5, and he'll no doubt benefit greatly from the Patriots' upcoming first-round playoff bye. Once the team returns to action in the postseason, Bennett will no doubt log a heavy workload, with fellow TE Rob Gronkowski (back) out for the season.
Bennett (ankle/shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Bennett will thus continue to work through his aches and pains Sunday and the tight end figures to remain in the Patriots' Week 17 mix as long as he avoids any in-game setbacks, and the outcome of the contest is in question.
Bennett (ankle/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's 1:00 ET game against the Dolphins, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. While the Patriots have clinched their division title and a first-round bye, the team still has designs on cementing home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. As a result, we'd expect Bennett to continue to work through his aches and pains Sunday against the Dolphins and remain in the mix as long as he avoids any setbacks, and the outcome of the contest is in question.
Bennett (ankle/shoulder) was limited at practice Wednesday. The Patriots have clinched their division title and a first-round bye, but the team still has its sights on securing home-field advantage throughout AFC playoffs. As a result, we'd expect Bennett to continue to play through his aches and pains Sunday against Dolphins and remain in the contest as long as the outcome of the tilt is in question.
