There was a scary moment in the game between the Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans on Sunday as Michael Bennett was carted off the field, according to ESPN's John Clayton:

Originally, the defensive end made little movement after going down. Fortunately, Jerry Brewer of the Seattle Times reported that he was at least moving his extremities as he left the field:

Bennett is off to a good start in his first year with the Seahawks since coming over from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He had 2.5 sacks in three games and was a big part of helping the defense become one of the best in the league.
Before leaving the game against the Texans, the fifth-year player had three quarterback hits on Matt Schaub.
If the injury is as serious as it looks, the Seahawks will struggle to make up for the defensive player's production. Red Bryant will likely take the snaps at defensive end while Bennett is out.
