SEATTLE — Michael Bennett was alone in sitting. He wasn’t alone in support from his teammates.

Bennett sat on the Seahawks’ bench before Friday night’s preseason game against Minnesota, the second straight week he remained seated while the “Star-Spangled Banner” was played.

Bennett was the only Seattle player on the bench, but he was joined by two teammates standing with him. Center Justin Britt stood alongside with his hand on Bennett’s shoulder. Defensive back Jeremy Lane also stood next to Bennett. Lane sat for the national anthem during one preseason game last year.

“It was something me and my wife talked about and discussed. We both wanted to show support to Mike,” Britt said. “I talked to him before, made sure it was all right with him, and of course it was. I feel like what I did, I believe in it. I’m going to continue to educate myself and try to understand why things are going wrong.”

Seahawks left tackle George Fant suffered a torn ACL in his right knee Friday night against Minnesota and is likely done for the season.

Seattle Coach Pete Carroll said after the 20-13 victory that Fant has a significant injury that will require surgery.

DOLPHINS: Linebacker Rey Maualuga has signed with Miami, which put wide receiver Isaiah Ford on injured reserve.

Maualuga gives the Dolphins some needed linebacker depth, especially after rookie Raekwon McMillan was lost for the season with a knee injury in Miami’s first preseason game.

Maualuga played his first eight NFL seasons in Cincinnati, which cut him back in March. He was a full-time starter for the Bengals in his first seven seasons, then started only six games last season.

Ford was Miami’s seventh-round pick in this year’s draft out of Virginia Tech.

JAGUARS: Rookie running back Leonard Fournette and receiver Marqise Lee think they will be ready for Jacksonville’s season opener.

Fournette and Lee spoke Saturday for the first time since being sidelined by injuries a week ago and expressed confidence they would play in the Sept. 10 opener at Houston.
