Bennett posted one sack, two tackles for a loss and one pass deflection in Sunday's 12-9 win over the 49ers. Bennett didn't come across many tackles in Sunday's win, but he made the most of his limited opportunities with yet another sack. The star defensive end played 42 of the team's 49 defensive snaps and now has 2.5 sacks through the first two games of the season.
Bennett recorded three tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's loss to the Packers. Bennett was slow to get up and exited briefly midway through the third quarter, but returned shortly after. The 32-year-old played 66 of Seattle's 82 defensive snaps and was able to take advantage of second-year offensive tackle Kyle Murphy, especially in the first half.
Bennett will not play in Thursday's preseason game against the Raiders and will receive treatment on an undisclosed injury, Liz Mathews of USA Today reports. Head coach Pete Carroll said he isn't concerned about any of his players missing Thursday's game to undergo the procedure, so Bennett likely is just getting some last-minute pain treatment in order to ensure he is healthy for the start of the regular season.
Bennett agreed to a three-year contract extension with Seattle Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. 2016 was the third year of a four-year, $32 million contract that Bennett signed with Seattle in 2014. The extension will keep him in Seattle through the 2020 season, after which he'll be 35 years old. The exact details of the deal haven't yet been disclosed. Bennett has recorded 32 tackles and 4.0 sacks in 10 games played so far this season.
Bennett (neck) was listed as a full participant in Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Bennett injured his neck last week against the Rams. While at first it looked as if he may have suffered some sort of catastrophic injury, it appears Bennett is completely in the clear after practicing in full form Thursday.
