  • Bennett had one assisted tackle and a sack in Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Redskins. Bennett increased his season sack total to 6.5, but he was otherwise quiet against a patchwork Redskins' offensive line. The 31-year-old played 58 of 63 defensive snaps and didn't appear to aggravate his lingering foot injury, although he will likely see limited practice reps again this week.

  • Bennett is dealing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune reports. It isn't clear at this point if Bennett's injury -- which is described as a "pain-management issue" -- is a threat to his availability for Sunday's showdown with the Texans. While he was held out of practice Wednesday, Bennett could make a return Thursday or Friday, and still be cleared to play in time for Sunday's 4:05 p.m. EST kickoff. His effectiveness, though, could be compromised even if he does play. After all, he played 52 defensive snaps during last week's game against the Giants but failed to log a tackle or any other counting stat.

  • Seahawks' Michael Bennett: Active for Week 7
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bennett (heel) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants. Bennett opened the week as a nonparticipant in practice due to the injury, but after logging full sessions Thursday and Friday, he looks poised to take on a full workload Sunday. With four sacks through the Seahawks' first five games, Bennett is on pace to reach double figures in that category for the second time in his career.

  • Seahawks' Michael Bennett: Questionable for Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bennett (heel) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Friday's practice was only a walkthrough, but Bennett was also a full participant Thursday, so the questionable designation is a bit surprising. The 31-year-old is expected to play given his full practice participation, but Quinton Jefferson and Marcus Smith (ankle) would likely see an increased workload if he is forced to sit.

  • 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.
