Bennett was contrite when speaking to reporters at Olivet Nazarene University on Sunday, and expressed a desire to learn from the mistakes he made in his handling of the situation:
Bennett on the entire episode: "Everything in life is about learning lessons. You always learn from it, whether it’s good or bad.”

With Zach Miller and Dante Rosario playing a critical role in the team's success in Friday's 34-28 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, Bennett was happy with his teammates' success even in his absence:
Bennett tells us he was excited to see the other TEs perform so well in the preseason game vs. #Eagles.
