Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett was taken off the field on a stretcher after injuring his lower back on a hit on Houston quarterback Matt Schaub.
He was moving his legs and arms before he was strapped on the board and rolled off the field on a stretcher. The team says he has been taken to the hospital, but has feeling in all of his extremities.
Texans linebacker Brian Cushing left with a concussion in the third quarter. Cushing missed much of last season because of a knee injury.
Bennett was injured when he hit Schaub just as he got off a pass late in the second quarter. His head bent back awkwardly and he remained face down on the grass for several minutes.
Bennett is in his second stint with the Seahawks after spending the previous four seasons with Tampa Bay.

Look at Russell Wilson. Enough gets said about the Seattle Seahawks’ quarterback being short. But he’s adorable, too, and I don’t usually say that about guys. I just want to take him home to mom and tell her he’s my new little brother.

A Real Test…
Not that I’m trying to take away from the Seattle Seahawks perfect 3-0 record, but they haven’t exactly faced the stiffest competition in getting that far. While playing the Panthers on the road is far from a gimmie, it’s not like the Seahawks aren’t the vastly better of the two squads; even the Niners in week 2 wasn’t a real challenge, and don’t even...
The Seahawks defense hardly has a tough time coming up with turnovers and being proficient at catching deflections is one reason why. Earl Thomas eventually comes up with the interception once half the team gets a hand on it.
Seahawks 4-0 for 1st time
After the game I was having a conversation about dramatic victories the Seahawks have had in the recent years. I threw out the fact that the Bears game was the turning point of last season. It was also Russell Wilson’s coming out party as he grew from the Seahawks starting quarterback to a household name.
Because of those reasons I said it was the...
