Bennett commented, “Every single play I’m scratching and fighting” Bennett said. “Same way I play every single day. I go hard every single day. I’m probably one of the most violent people on the field.”

Bennet then pulled out his inner Allen Iverson, “It’s practice. Practice is practice,” Bennett said. “At the end of the day it’s practice. In practice, (stuff) happens. You learn from it, that’s why you practice. You learn from things that happen in practice.”
