Stetson Bennett says his missed season was due to mental health after returning to Rams

Stetson Bennett is back with the Los Angeles Rams after missing all of last season under mysterious circumstances.

While he declined to go into detail about the reasons for his absence, he told reporters after practice Tuesday that they fall under the umbrella of mental health. The 26-year-old reportedly said he spent last season at home and said he and the team would keep the specifics "in-house."

It was a major surprise last year when the Rams placed Bennett on the reserve/non-football illness list three days after their season opener.
