Seahawks’ plane stops for precautionary check

October 3, 2006


— The Seattle Seahawks' charter plane made an emergency landing early Monday morning to get medical care for Ray Rhodes, a special defensive assistant and former NFL head coach.

Coach Mike Holmgren said upon his return Monday from Seattle's 37-6 loss at Chicago that the stop in Rapid City, S.D., was because Rhodes "felt faint." The stop was made on the advice of team physicians on board. Rhodes was taken from the airport to a hospital in an ambulance.

Rhodes had two stroke-like episodes last fall.
