Michael Bennett: Cowboys 'classless' in wake of Ricardo Lockette hit

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett took aim at the Dallas Cowboys and head coach Jason Garrett for their response following safety Jeff Heath's hit on wide receiver Ricardo Lockette on Sunday.

"I thought it was a classless play, from everybody down," Bennett said. "I thought their coach could have come to the aid of our player to see if he was OK. That's what [Seahawks head coach] Pete Carroll would have done. I thought Jason Garrett could have done a better job of that."

Late in the first half, Lockette was running down the field on punt coverage when Heath hit him. Lockette lay motionless on the ground before eventually being lifted onto a stretcher. He had his eyes open, was talking and had full use of all his extremities, the team said.

Lockette will stay in Dallas overnight to undergo testing.

"He was cleared for the concussion stuff in terms of scans and stuff like that," Carroll said.

Bennett was fired up after the hit and had to be separated from some of the Cowboys players on the field.

Heath said after the game that he felt badly about how Lockette went down.

"Once I saw that he was down like that, I felt horrible," Heath said. "All the players in the NFL, it's one big brotherhood. You don't ever want to hurt a guy ... I just felt horrible when I saw how hurt he was, and that wasn't my intention at all."

Asked if he thought it was a clean hit, Heath said: "I really haven't seen the play. It's bang-bang. So I really can't comment on it until I see it, but I just heard he's OK. I heard he was moving. The doctor told me that they ran some tests and he's doing all right, so I'm just happy to hear that."

The officials flagged Heath for an illegal blindside block on the play.
