Colin Kaepernick, Other NFL Players Continue National Anthem Protests

Colin Kaepernick and several other NFL players continued to kneel during the playing of the national anthem, a protest started by San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback, he says, to shed light on wrongdoings against African Americans and other minorities, particularly when it comes to police brutality.

In Sunday’s early games, Kaepernick and teammate Eric Reid took a knee as they have done together since Week 4 of the preseason.

In New England, Dolphins Michael Thomas, Kenny Stills and Arian Foster knelt, as they did last week. But Jelani Jenkins, who had joined his teammates last week, did not Sunday.
