The defensive end, who was named the defensive player of the year in 2012, has made 17 tackles and three sacks so far this season.
Bevell told the team's website: "He's a star player. He really does a great job. He's tenacious. He works hard. He's long. He's creates a lot of issues.
"So he's definitely someone we have to account for and make sure he doesn't wreck the whole day for us. All those things will come into play. Protection is paramount this week."
The Seahawks are unbeaten so far this season.
