The team says Bentley has an anterior cruciate ligament injury.
Detroit's secondary played fine in the season opener but it's already a bit thin after losing Bentley. Safety James Ihedigbo was inactive for the game - he's been dealing with knee and neck injuries.
Bentley is in his third NFL season. He started five games last season for Detroit.
