Bennett (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett has been out since Week 7 after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery. His return to action will provide an immediate boost to a defense that is already tied for third in the league with 31 sacks on the year.

Bennett (knee) was limited in practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's tilt with the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett was a full participant in practice earlier in the week but now could be in danger of missing his sixth straight contest. Look for updates to come Sunday morning before kickoff with Frank Clark being the likely candidate to play in Bennett's absence.

Bennett (knee) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett's return to full practice puts him on track to return in Week 13, as expected. His return should immediately boost the Seahawks' pass rush.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says Bennett (knee) "should come back" to play in Sunday's game against the Panthers, ESPN's Sheil Kapadia reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett has been sidelined since Week 7 due to his knee problem, so him potentially returning this week would represent a long-anticipated boost to the Seahawks defense front.

Head coach Pete Carroll said Bennett (knee) has "a shot" to play in Week 13 versus the Panthers, ESPN's Liz Mathews reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett has missed five games with a knee injury. He likely first needs to get back on the practice field before having a chance to suit up for a game, though.

Bennett (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett hasn't been entirely ruled out of this week's place, but he doesn't appear likely to suit up. Expect another week of Frank Clark and Cliff Avril.

Head coach Pete Carroll said Bennett (knee) will either return this Sunday against Tampa Bay or next week against Carolina, ESPN's Sheil Kapadia reports. "He's going for it this week," Carroll added.

EDGE Analysis

The Seahawks' starting defensive end has missed each of the past four games, but a return appears imminent. While Bennett's level of participation in practice this week will help illuminate his status for Sunday's game against the Bucs, he'll only have to wait another week if he's ultimately unable to suit up. In any event, Frank Clark will likely see a significant reduction in playing time upon Bennett's return, whichever game that may come in.

Bennett (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Eagles, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett is still on the mend from arthroscopic knee surgery and wasn't expected to be ready for this game anyway. His next chance to play will come next week against the Buccaneers.

Head coach Pete Carroll stated Monday that it would be "miraculous" for Bennett (knee) to return for Sunday's matchup with the Eagles, Curtis Crabtree of the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett has been sidelined the previous three weeks, and unless you believe in miracles, appears on track to miss at least one more. A return Week 12 is presumably the best bet for the veteran defensive end at this point. Frank Clark figures to be in line for another start if Bennett indeed cannot go.
