The Seattle Seahawks are entering the bye week with a perfect 5-0 record to start the season for the first time in franchise history. But there is a more important record coach Pete Carroll wants the team to preserve as well – continuing to test negative for COVID-19 throughout the break.
With the coronavirus pandemic still in full swing, players will still be required to test daily, even during the bye week.
“We have to be so, so tuned in,” Carroll said during his Monday morning press conference. “Rule No. 1 is always protect the team, you know. This is what this week is about. Rule No.1 is all about conscience and staying connected to team and players and who you represent and all that.
