Although the Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans have given us a relatively entertaining game (despite a somewhat lopsided score currently), there was a scary moment that involved Seattle Seahawks pass rusher Michael Bennett, who was crafted off the field earlier today.

As Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub dropped back to pass, the Texans’ offensive line began to collapse, forcing Schaub up into the pocket where both Seattle defensive ends closed in on the signal caller. The end result was a handful of Seahawks arriving at Schaub at a near identical time where the Texans quarterback, attempting to get away from the pressure, ran right into the head of the falling Bennett.

He immediately fell to the ground where he remained until he was removed via cart, though, thankfully Bennett was moving and showed signs of being alert as he was taken off the field.

To make matters worse, Bennett’s father was in the crowd and could be seen yelling towards his son, obviously concerned as any parent would be.
