NFL players resume protests during US anthem

August 9th, 2018

Philadelphia Eagles players Malcolm Jenkins and De'Vante Bausby raised their fists in protest during the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner prior to Thursday's exhibition game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The move marks a resumption of the NFL players decision to protest during the playing of the pre-game anthem in order to raise awareness about social injustice in the US. In Miami, Dolphins defensive end Robert Quinn raised his right fist and teammates Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson took a knee during the song.
