Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett left Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans with a lower back injury, according to NFL.com's Greg Rosenthal. Bennett sustained the injury in the second quarter and was unfortunately carted off the field on a stretcher. Thankfully, he was still able to move his arms and legs after the play. Bennett was later cleared by hospital medical staff after receiving precautionary tests. He was allowed to return to the stadium and rejoin his teammates shortly after his departure. It is still unknown exactly how much damage Bennett may have done. While it is certainly encouraging to know that he was allowed to leave the hospital so quickly after sustaining a potentially serious lower back injury, there is still a possibility that Bennett could miss time. His on-field presence would be missed as he has been one of the most reliable pass-rushers on the team so far this season with 2.5 sacks in three and a half games. Lucky for Seahawk fans, reinforcements are on the way whether Bennett can play next week or not. Former first-round draft pick Bruce Irvin is eligible to return from his four-game suspension this week. Plus, veteran defensive end Chris Clemons returned this week against Houston and played well in limited action.  Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
