Pete Carroll talked a lot about empathy today, including when he was asked about the statement that was made with some Seahawks players putting aside their beliefs about the national anthem for the sake of team unity. His answer: "I think it's a wonderful statement of being part of something and being willing to listen to the other side and to be empathetic and make choices based on [your desire] to support those others, and that's huge, that's a huge statement. Like I said, it might be one of the most powerful statements is that people are willing to listen to the other side and then act accordingly as opposed to not listening and not hearing it. I think it's hugely important. If we're going to move forward, we have to listen to the messaging that's being screamed at us about inequality and we have to listen. It has nothing to do with what a lot of other stuff has to do with. It's just listening and finding a way to understand and then hopefully going to the compassion and being willing to do something about it."

Pete Carroll was asked for his response to people who are angry at the Seahawks' decision to not participate in the national anthem Sunday. His response: "I understand that there's different points of view here. I think this is a really fascinating opportunity for us to understand that there's differences with how we look at things. These are protests and they're statements of feelings and expressions of freedom of speech that can be taken as however you want to take it. It's hard for everybody to see everybody's view because we don't have the skills that empathy calls for to understand somebody has something to say. Empathy would call on us to listen and to not pass judgement. Whether or not you want to demonstrate compassion by working to try to help their situation, that's what's at stake right here. It's been so directed at just the flag or just law enforcement, other thoughts. That's not all the players are expressing; they're expressing freedom of speech and expression, and they have a lot to say and they're skilled at what they want to say and what they stand for."

Oday Aboushi sounds like the favorite to remain the Seahawks' starter at right guard based on Pete Carroll's review of his play. Aboushi started Sunday, taking over for Mark Glowinski. "The offensive line really showed us stuff we liked," Carroll said. "We thought we could protect. When we did run the ball, we had nice movement at the line of scrimmage. So we're building. I think Oday Aboushi had something to do with that. He really helped us. Nice performance by him. I think he complemented well the first time out for us."

Pete Carroll on the groin injury that WR Doug Baldwin suffered yesterday: "He's got a strain. We'll see what that means. We don't know what that means for the week at this point." Carroll said LB Dewey McDonald has an ACL injury that's "serious." LT Rees Odhiambo and RB C.J. Prosise were both evaluated for ankle injuries.

Pete Carroll said the Seahawks haven't made any decision on what they're going to do during the national anthem going forward.

Pete Carroll said it was a hard decision for a few Seahawks players to not come out for the national anthem yesterday. Here was his response when asked what he said to Trump supporters in the locker room who put aside their stance in the name of team unity.

The Colts have ruled out QB Andrew Luck for Sunday night's game against the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field, according to Mike Wells of ESPN.com. Jacoby Brissett (17 of 24, 259 yards, TD, 0 INT) led Indianapolis to a win over Cleveland yesterday in his second start with the Colts.

The sting of 1-2 instead of 2-1

Of 13 teams to enter Week 3 at 1-1, only the Texans and Seahawks lost (a third team to join them Monday night). Since the playoff field expanded to 1990, teams to start 1-2 have reached the playoffs less than half as often as teams to start 2-1. That said, ESPN's FPI still pegs Seattle's odds at 65.8 percent, while Houston is down at 7.4 percent.

Chris Carson again got the majority of the playing time among Seahawks RBs yesterday, playing 41 of 73 offensive snaps (27 for C.J. Prosise, 1 for Thomas Rawls, 0 for Eddie Lacy). On defense, six players played more than 70 defensive snaps.

CB Richard Sherman disagreed with the pass-interference and unnecessary roughness penalties that were called against him. The latter came on what officials deemed to be a late hit out of bounds on Titans QB Marcus Mariota. Sherman: "No, he was still in bounds, so I play until the blow of the whistle. If the quarterback slides, or kind of gives himself up or does something like that, then you stop. But, if there's still yards that he's gaining, you're taught to play to the whistle. It's so crazy the way the game is nowadays. (Mariota) came up to me and said 'good hit' because he understood that I'm playing till the blow of the whistle. I'm not waiting until you took two steps out of bounds. It's a game of inches and you can't give up anything, and it's just one of those plays. It's football. It seems like the world is getting a lot softer in terms of the way it's officiated and the way it's seen, but it's football at the end of the day."

CB Richard Sherman said the Seahawks met for several hours and considered different proposals before deciding to remain in the locker room for the national anthem: "This is a world-changing, life-changing event. Once in a lifetime. You have to capture a moment like that, and the moment doesn't affect everyone the same. Some people, it's a moment that has no effect, has little effect. It won't move their needle either way, which is fine, but they sympathize with their teammates so they do want to do something. Going out there and sitting down during the national anthem for some guys was unacceptable, and that's fine. That's fine. We made that decision with that in mind. For some guys, there was a suggestion that we kneel with the flag half-staff because that symbolizes that there's an issue going on in our country, and there is, obviously. So, there were a ton of things thrown around but I think we came to a good decision and we stand by it."

Pete Carroll said WR Doug Baldwin has "a groin strain of some degree." Asked if he thinks he'll play next week, Baldwin said: "I would love to." LB Dewey McDonald, one of the Seahawks' top special teams players, injured his knee early in the game. Pete Carroll said "there's ACL concerns" with McDonald's knee.

SS Kam Chancellor said the Seahawks' defense unnecessarily wasted energy by getting into it with Titans players. "I think every time we get into bickering it takes a little bit (of a toll)," he said. "It's wasted energy."
