Patriots' Ja'Whaun Bentley: Records career high in stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bentley posted 12 tackles and a half-sack in Sunday's 18-12 loss to the Broncos.

Bently was named the Patriots' starting inside linebacker during training camp, and he got off to a modest start to 2020, recording at least four tackles but no more than six stops in each of the first four games. The third-year pro exploded Sunday, though, leading the team in tackles and reaching a new career high in the process. He had plenty of opportunities since the Broncos' running backs carried 32 times, so this performance could be tough to replicate in a different game script.

Patriots' Ja'Whaun Bentley: Path to playing time opens up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bentley is in line to see more action in the Patriots defense during the upcoming season, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

With Jamie Collins, Kyle Van Noy and Elandon Roberts having left via free agency and Donta Hightower having opted out of this season, Bentley looks primed for more reps at inside linebacker in 2020. Most notably, he'll be tasked with replacing Hightower as the Patriots' defensive play-caller. Bentley, who turns 24 later this month, logged 44 tackles in his second season with New England in 2019, but he's bound to see a spike in production in his expanded role and could emerge as a reliable IDP option.

Patriots' Ja'Whaun Bentley: All clear Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bentley (knee) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Bentley logged just limited practice throughout the week, and his status was uncertain. Now that he's officially healthy, Bentley should be a huge boost to the linebacker depth for Week 14.

Patriots' Ja'Whaun Bentley: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bentley is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs due to a knee injury.

Bentley was limited at practice all week and is looking like a true game-time decision. The Patriots are thin at linebacker depth, so Shilique Calhoun could potentially be called to back up inside linebacker as well as the outside should Bentley ultimately be unable to go.

Patriots' Ja'Whaun Bentley: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bentley (biceps) won't be activated from injured reserve this season, thus ending his 2018 campaign, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports.

Bentley has been out since Week 3 due to a biceps injury and hasn't seen the field since. The Patriots already used their two IR with designation to return spots on Duke Dawson (hamstring) and Rex Burkhead (neck), so Bentley is the odd man out. In just three games this season, the rookie carved out a nice role with the team, racking up 14 tackles (nine solo) and one interception. Now that Bentley is officially done for the year, John Simon should continue to get extra snaps at linebacker.

Patriots' Ja'Whaun Bentley: Wearing cast and sling
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bentley (arm) is wearing a cast on his right arm Sunday, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports.

Bentley was placed on injured reserve earlier this week due to an undisclosed injury, which would appear to be related to his right arm. The rookie fifth-rounder had earned a role in New England's defense before suffering the injury. Bentley could be a candidate to return after missing eight games, but for the time being John Simon and Brandon King stand to split the rookie's defensive snaps.

Patriots' Ja'Whaun Bentley: Heading to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bentley (undisclosed) will be placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Jim McBride of the Boston Globe reports.

Bentley saw snaps on defense and special teams in each of New England's games to begin the season. The fifth-round rookie seemed on track to carve out a key role in the team's defense, but will miss at least the next eight weeks on injured reserve. Expect John Simon and Brandon King to receive increased rotational and special teams snaps in Bentley's absence.

Patriots' Ja'Whaun Bentley: Seven tackles in pro debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bentley played 51 snaps on defense in Sunday's victory over the Texans and had seven tackles (four solo). He also logged one QB hit.

Bentley additionally played 15 snaps on special teams. Patriots' special teams captain Matthew Slater went so far as to compare the fifth-round rookie to former Pro Bowl linebacker Jerod Mayo after the season opener, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports. "His play on the field has been tremendous," Slater said, "He's a player that players in this locker room really trust and have a lot of confidence in." Bentley's 51 defensive snaps were the most played by any member of the Patriots' front seven Week 1.
