According to the NFL Network, the Patriots have suspended Bennett for one week for conduct detrimental to the team. According to the Athletic, the veteran defensive end let the Patriots coaching staff know he was unhappy with his role.
“On Friday, I had a philosophical disagreement with my position coach that has led to my suspension,” Bennett said to ESPN. “I apologize to my teammates for any distraction this may have caused.”
Bennett wasn’t at practice on Tuesday. It was an unusual absence since he hasn’t been on the injury report, but now we know why.
