Seahawks DE Michael Bennett blasts Jason Garrett after Ricardo Lockette injury

Football News

The Seattle Seahawks had to suffer through a very scary moment during their loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, as Ricardo Lockette suffered a nasty-looking injury.

The wide receiver was left laying limp on the field following a big hit from Cowboys safety Jeff Heath while covering a punt.

As you can probably imagine, the Seahawks weren't too happy with Heath for the block that could have caused serious injury to Lockette.

Bennett Blasts Garrett

Seattle's Michael Bennett is never one to shy away from controversy or keep his opinions to himself, and the defensive end slammed not only the play but Jason Garrett as well.

“I thought it was a classless play,” Bennett said, via the Seattle Times. “I thought their coach could have came to the aid of our player to see that he was OK. That’s what Pete Carroll would have done. I thought [Cowboys coach] Jason Garrett could have done a better job on that."

Poor Reffing 

It wasn't just Garrett and Heath who felt Bennett's ire, but the referee's as well.

"I thought the referees sucked. When something happens like that, it’s their job to protect the players, but they haven’t been doing a very good job of it this year," Bennett added.

Bennett wasn't the only Seahawk to criticise the play, with linebacker Mike Morgan calling the hit a “dirty play” and that Jeff Heath “should definitely have to pay for” what he did to Lockette.

Thankfully, Lockette was just diagnosed with a concussion and no further damage which is a big positive considering how bad the wideout seemed initially.
