Hospital tests indicate Seahawks DE Michael Bennett will be fine

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett appeared to be badly injured as he attempted to sack Texans quarterback Matt Schaub late in the second quarter of a game that Houston has dominated, but according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, all the hospital tests have indicated there is no major injury.

As Bennett, who suffered a lower back injury, rushed and ultimately hit Schaub, his head and back were bent backward in an awkward angle.

He had to be stretchered off the field with his father in attendance. TV replays showed his father, wearing a Bennett jersey, with a worried look on his face.
