Much of the buzz surrounding Week 1 of the NFL season has been on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his refusal to stand during the national anthem.
Many players around the league have joined Kaepernick in protesting what he says are racist police practices and behavior by kneeling during the anthem. Others have found other ways to protest while still standing.
Before the game between the 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams on ESPN’s Monday Night Football, former Rutgers wide receiver Kenny Britt and teammate Robert Quinn raised a fist in the air during the anthem.
