Seahawks' Michael Bennett: Doesn't expect to play for Seattle in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett said Sunday that he "probably won't be [with Seattle] next year" following the Seahawks' 26-24 loss to the Cardinals in the season finale, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

After inking a three-year, $29.5 million contract extension with the Seahawks last December, Bennett more or less met expectations in the first season of the new deal, as he suited up for all 16 games in 2017 and compiled 40 stops (25 solo) and 8.5 sacks. The 32-year-old defensive end played through a torn plantar fascia in his foot and a swollen knee during the season, which may have prevented him from mounting even better numbers. Despite the fact he's still productive in the latter half of his career, Bennett's high salary number could make it difficult for the Seahawks to retain him with cap flexibility a priority for the team.

Seahawks' Michael Bennett: Logs sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett had four tackles (three solo) and a sack in Sunday's 21-12 victory over the Cowboys.

The sack brings Bennett's season total to 8.5, and is his first one since Week 12 against the 49ers. The veteran defensive end has had a quiet second half of the season, registering only 18 tackles (11 solo) and two sacks in eight games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Bennett was a full practice participant Friday after sitting out earlier in the week. The Seahawks were likely expressing caution with their veteran defensive end, who looks to be ready to play Week 16.

Seahawks' Michael Bennett: Playing through swollen knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (knee) won't practice Wednesday but is still expected to play Sunday against the Cowboys, Michael-Shawn Dugar of SeattlePI.com reports.

Bennett is experiencing swelling in his knee, and his practice reps are simply being scaled back to keep him fresh for Sunday's game.

Seahawks' Michael Bennett: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett was a full participant at Friday's practice after failing to participant earlier in the week due to a knee injury, John Boyle of Seahawks.com reports.

Bennett was likely held out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday as a precaution with what appears to have been a minor knee issue, but he'll be good to go in Week 14 against the Jaguars. He's notched just one sack in the Seahawks' past four games, so he'll look to get back on track in Jacksonville.
