SEATTLE | 3 Seahawks leave field prior to national anthem
SEATTLE — Three Seattle Seahawks players ran into the tunnel leading to the team’s locker room prior to the national anthem on Thursday night.
Defensive linemen Branden Jackson and Quinton Jefferson, and offensive lineman Duane Brown left the field following team introductions and before the start of the anthem. They returned to the sideline immediately after it concluded. All three were among a group of Seattle players that sat during the anthem last season.
