Bonehead Bennett nearly injured Linder

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett accused the Las Vegas police department in August to take shots at him when they detained him and then he publicly criticized their actions. Bennett is going to be criticized for his actions on Sunday.

While there’s been little on the Las Vegas incident since it happened — the officers did not have their body cameras on and some believe that Bennett used that incident to push his own agenda – Bennett can’t hide from what he did on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. His bone-head actions could have seriously injured someone.

Bennett’s actions also caused a scuffle that also saw rookie Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette to get into Bennett’s face. Bennett dived at the Jaguars center Brandon Linder’s knees several times.

This could have seriously injured the center, or even tore his ACL, which would have caused him to miss the rest of the season. The Jaguars have not said if Linder was injured because of Bennett.

As the Jaguars were attempted to close out the game by taking a knee, Bennett went after Linder. The play caused pushing and shoving by their teammates – yet Bennett wasn’t ejected at all.

He then went after Linder a second time, a short distance away from where the play actually started. Sheldon Richardson, who is in his first season with the team after being acquired in a trade with the New York Jets, was ejected for his role in the incident.

Despite not being ejected, Bennett could definitely receive a fine, or even a suspension from the league. Yet, he did not explain his actions after the game.
