Seattle's Michael Bennett ruled out versus New Orleans

RENTON, Wash. (AP) Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett has been ruled out for Sunday's game at New Orleans with a knee injury.

Seattle released its final injury report Friday. Bennett will miss his first game since coming to Seattle in 2013. He last missed a game in 2011 when playing for Tampa Bay.

Bennett played 81 snaps in last week's 6-6 tie with Arizona. He suffered a knee injury in the second half of Seattle's win over Atlanta two weeks ago.

Also ruled out was safety Kam Chancellor, who will miss his third straight game with a groin injury. Left tackle Bradley Sowell is also out with a knee injury, likely leaving undrafted rookie George Fant as the starting left tackle.

Quarterback Russell Wilson was not on the final injury report, meaning he's expected to start and play. Wilson has been limited this week by a pectoral injury.
