Seahawks' Michael Bennett: Entering the season healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (undisclosed) was absent from Wednesday's injury report, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Bennett wasn't expected to miss time anyways, but it's good to see him and Cliff Avril (abdomen) both absent from the injury report. This puts serious pressure on the Packers from both sides of the line, which could be even more of a threat if left tackle Bryan Bulaga (ankle) has to sit out.

Seahawks' Michael Bennett: Out Thursday vs. Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
