It’s the same thing the Raiders running back did all of last season.

There were no other reports of protests in the two games Friday, but several players either were not on the field for the anthem or took a knee during the anthem Thursday. That included Dolphins receiver Kenny Stills, who took a knee along with receiver Albert Wilson.

Three Seahawks left the field for the anthem before their game, and four Jaguars stayed inside for the anthem before their game.
