Bennett had two sacks in Sunday's 27-20 loss at Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett replaced Derek Barnett (shoulder) as the starter at right defensive end in late October and has a sack in four straight games and five of the last six. The multi-sack performance is the 33-year-old's first since Week 8 of last season, and now has 5.5 sacks in 2018.

Bennett will replace Derek Barnett (shoulder) at right defensive end, Tommy Lawlor of the Eagles' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett should draw the start and see more snaps Sunday in London, although Chris Long and Josh Sweat will likely see increased work as well. The 32-year-old could be a sneaky good IDP play as he'll be matched up against a backup tackle and therefore should have ample opportunity to make plays. The Texas A&M product has 15 tackles (10 solo) and three sacks on the season.

Bennett is expected to take on a bigger role following Derek Barnett's shoulder surgery, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the sour news stemming out of Philadelphia on Tuesday, there's reason for optimism with Bennett assuming a larger role. The 10-year vet has showed he still has gas left in the tank as evident with his three sacks over the team's last four contests. Bennett has earned time interchangeably throughout the early going so a drop off of large proportions is not expected to occur.

Bennett recorded two tackles (one solo), including a sack, in Sunday's loss to Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett started the season off slow but has now recorded three sacks in the last four weeks. He hasn't put up big tackle numbers but he'll be a decent fantasy option if he can continue getting to the quarterback each week. He and the Eagles will take on the Jaguars and their struggling offense in Week 8.

Bennett had six tackles (four solo) with a sack and a forced fumble in Thursday's win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

The sack is Bennett's second of the season and Thursday marked the first time this year he posted more than two tackles. The 32-year-old played 47 of 65 defensive snaps -- tied with Chris Long for the most among defensive lineman -- and was much more involved than previous weeks.

Bennett (knee) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Mike Jones of USA Today reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett was added to the injury report Tuesday with a knee issue, but he doesn't appear to be in any danger of missing the opener against Atlanta. The veteran defensive end figures to rotate in for the Eagles this season after totaling 8.5 sacks and 40 tackles (25 solo) last season.

Bennett (knee) was added to the injury report Wednesday, Eliot Shorr-Parks of 94WIP.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bennett has historically rested the final practice of the week and it seems like that trend will continue in Philadelphia. Barring any major setbacks, expect Bennett to on the field Thursday night.

Bennett will be arraigned Aug. 7 on his March indictment for felony injury to the elderly, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The incident in question is when Bennett entered the field after his brother, Martellus, won the Super Bowl in February of 2017. Pelissero adds that the courts are seeking a tape that shows Bennett as he arrives at the field. The August date for arraignment is problematic since it's just two days before the Eagles' first preseason contest. If the case goes to trial, it'll likely be after the season.

Bennett reported for the Eagles' mandatory minicamp Monday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Eagles don't take the field until Tuesday, but Bennett's presence at the facility is significant nonetheless since the defensive end didn't attend voluntary OTAs this spring. While it's possible his legal situation could prevent him from taking the field in Week 1, Bennett presumably will still be entering training camp with the first-string defense.

Bennett didn't report to first day of OTAs on Tuesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

This isn't related to the felony charge Bennett is facing in Harris County, Texas, Tim McManus reports, and head coach Doug Pederson isn't worried about his absence. Bennett has racked up 23.5 sacks during his last three seasons with the Seahawks, and he will help bolster an already strong defensive corps in Philly.
