Michael Bennett - RB, Minnesota Vikings 09/19/05
The Pioneer Press reports that Minnesota Vikings RB Michael Bennett was pulled for two series after a first quarter fumble Sunday, Sept. 18th. After returning to the game and fumbling again, Bennett was benched for the rest of the game. While he did not blame anyone else, Bennett was discouraged the team didn't let him stay in the game after gaining 36 yards on his first three carries. Offensive coordinator Steve Loney considers Bennett's fumbles a troubling sign.
Huddle Up: Mewelde Moore was the main beneficiary from Bennett's benching, if you can call it that, gaining 29 yards on eight carries and seven yards on two receptions in the loss to Cincinnati. Moore will most likely start this Sunday against New Orleans if Bennett remains in Mike Tice's doghouse.
I know it's not the same thing but you would think they find Dante's 10 turnovers a troubling sign.
