Bennett (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Bennett suffered a pectoral injury in Sunday's game against the Titans and did not return. With Bennett now out for at least eight weeks, Dexter Fowler Jr. will likely take on a higher percentage of defensive snaps in his absence.
Bennett recorded one solo tackle and one pass breakup before leaving the game. If this turns out to be a long-term ailment, expect Dante Fowler Jr. to pick up more defensive snaps in Bennett's absence.
Bennett (groin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.
Bennett participated fully in both Wednesday and Thursday's practices, so it doesn't look as though his status for Sunday was ever truly in doubt. The 24-year-old starts the season behind Calais Campbell on the Jaguars depth chart at defensive end.
Bennet landed on the Jaguars' first official injury report Wednesday with a groin injury, Ryan O'Halloran of Jacksonville.com reports.
If healthy, Bennett projects to back up Calais Campbell at defensive end this season. It is unclear when he sustained his groin injury or how severe it is. His status will need to be monitored throughout the week.
Bennett (calf) could be sidelined for the team's next exhibition game against the Buccaneers, Ryan O'Halloran of Jacksonville.com reports.
Bennett was absent from practice Wednesday, which is the reason he is unlikely to take the field Thursday. The 24-year-old is currently competing for snaps providing depth at defensive tackle.
