National Football League players resume protests during USA anthem

All three were among a group of Seattle players that sat during the anthem last season.

Michael Bennett of the Eagles did not participate in the anthem and instead walked out of the tunnel and toward the bench while the anthem was sung, Bowen reported.

During pregame warmups, multiple Eagles players wore T-shirts raising awareness about voter registration and prison populations. Earlier this year, the league said it would require players to stand for the national anthem or remain in the locker room.

Jenkins was joined on the sideline by cornerback De'Vante Bausby, who also raised a fist. It happened before the Dolphins game against the Buccaneers, and former Chief Albert Wilson was one of the players who took a knee.

The NFL introduced a new national anthem policy this season.

And while some pesky clouds will be around on Friday and Saturday, forecasts show a return to clear skies on Sunday and Monday. But for those who want to experience the meteor shower amped up to 11, getting to a "dark sky park " is an absolute must.

Kaepernick applauded the Dolphins players shortly after the display for their protest of "systemic oppression". The anthem will continue to be played before every game, and all player and non-player personnel on the field at that time are expected to stand during the presentation of the flag and performance of the anthem.

A pair of Miami Dolphins football players took a knee during the national anthem before the team's preseason opener on Thursday.

The anthem controversy has been rumbling since 2016, when then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick knelt during the anthem to draw attention to racial injustice.

The section said fines or suspensions could potentially be handed out to players who kneel during the anthem. In July, the league and players association jointly announced that the new rule was "frozen" until further notice.
