And so it continues.
With NFL ratings on the decline and owners beginning to speak out against the national anthem protests, players still have the audacity to disrespect our country. Many have chosen to boycott the NFL over their refusal to counteract the protests, so we’ve decided to make it easier.
Here is a list of all the NFL players who chose to protest the national anthem this week:
Colin Kaepernick | San Francisco 49ers
Colin Kaepernick, who had his first start of the season, knelt during the national anthem before the 49ers’ game against the Bills in Buffalo. Kaepernick was again accompanied by linebacker Eli Harold and safety Eric Reid in taking a knee during the national anthem. Safeties Jaquiski Tartt and Antoine Bethea, running back Mike Davis and cornerbacks Keith Reaser and Rashard Robinson also raised their right fists as the anthem played.
Joe Barksdale, D.J. Fluke, Chris Hairston, Joshua Perry | San Diego Chargers
Before Sunday’s game against the Titans, offensive linemen Joe Barksdale, D.J. Fluker, Chris Hairston and linebacker Joshua Perry once again raised their fists during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial oppression.
Malcolm Jenkins and Ron Brooks | Philadelphia Eagles
Safety Malcolm Jenkins and cornerback Ron Brooks each raised a fist over their heads during the national anthem before their game against the Giants. Both players have been doing so since Week 2 of the season.
Robert Quinn | Los Angeles Rams
Defensive end Robert Quinn held up his right fist during the national anthem before the Rams’ game against the Panthers. He has been doing that since Week 1 of the season and has said he will continue no matter the backlash.
Jason McCourty, Wesley Woddyard, Jurrell Casey, DaQuan Jones | Tennessee Titans
After the national anthem before the Titans’ game against the Browns, cornerback Jason McCourty, linebacker Wesley Woodyard and defensive linemen Jurrell Casey and DaQuan Jones all raised a fist, as they’ve done multiple times throughout this season.
