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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Bennett had four tackles (three solo) and a sack Sunday against the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett has now climbed to 7.5 sacks this season, but he averages less than three tackles per game. With a Sunday night matchup against Philly on the horizon, Bennett will have his work cut out for him versus QB Carson Wentz, who has been sacked just twice in his last three games.

Bennett had one assisted tackle and a sack in Sunday's loss the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett increased his season sack total to 6.5, but was otherwise quiet against a patchwork Redskins' offensive line. The 31-year-old played 58 of 63 defensive snaps and didn't appear to aggravate his lingering foot injury, although he will likely see limited practice reps again this week.

Bennett recorded six tackles (four solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's win over the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett spent the week leading up to Sunday's win dealing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, but the defensive end didn't appear to be slowed down from the injury. Bennett's season sack total is now at 5.5 -- as the veteran is on pace to set a new career-high.

Bennett (foot) was a full practice participant Friday and won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Texans, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was reported earlier this week that Bennett is dealing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, and he sat out practice until Friday's session. The 31-year-old did not record a tackle in Sunday's win over the Giants, and will look to bounce back against Deshaun Watson and the Texans, despite the injury.

Bennett is dealing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

It isn't clear at this point if Bennett's injury -- which is described as a "pain-management issue" -- is a threat to his availability for Sunday's showdown with the Texans. While he was held out of practice Wednesday, Bennett could still make a return Thursday or Friday and still be cleared to play in time for Sunday's 4:05 PM EST kickoff. His effectiveness, though, could be compromised even if he does play. After all, he played 52 defensive snaps during last week's game against the Giants but failed to log a tackle or any other counting stat.

Bennett (heel) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett opened the week as a nonparticipant in practice due to the injury, but after logging full sessions Thursday and Friday, he looks poised to take on a full workload Sunday. With four sacks through the Seahawks' first five games, Bennett is on pace to reach double figures in that category for the second time in his career.

Bennett (heel) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Friday's practice was only a walk-through, but Bennett was also a full participant Thursday so the questionable designation is a bit surprising. The 31-year-old is likely expected to play given his full practice participation, but Quinton Jefferson and Marcus Smith (ankle) would likely see an increased workload if he is forced to sit.

Bennett (heel) was a full practice participant Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a Week 5 bye, Bennett stayed off his plantar fascia injury at Wednesday's session, only to go through every practice rep Thursday. Head coach Pete Carroll called Bennett "a little sore" following the conclusion of drills, but the defensive end "looks like he's ready to go" Sunday against the Giants. Barring a setback, Bennett will look to build upon his 15 tackles and four sacks through five games on the campaign.

Bennett sustained a plantar fascia injury during Sunday's victory over the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett briefly exited Sunday's game in the second quarter but later returned and ultimately played the entire second half. Head coach Pete Carroll his defensive end was simply "sore" Monday, so it doesn't sound as if Bennett is looking at any sort of absence. Supporting that notion is the fact the Seahawks have a bye in Week 6, which affords Bennett extra time to return to form.
