Eagles' Jenkins: Headlines, spotlight won't stop activism

Eagles' Jenkins: Headlines, spotlight won't stop activism Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins does not believe the heated exchange he had with the Carolina Panthers' Eric Reid diminishes the impact of his fight for racial and social justice. Jenkins is the face of the Players' Coalition while Reid is a former member. They shouted at each other during and after the Eagles' 21-17 home loss on Sunday. Reid branded Jenkins a "sellout" after the game and said he "co-opted the movement" started by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick because the group of players has chosen to work with the NFL to further its cause.

Benjamin Todd Roethlisberger Sr. (/ˈrɒθlɪsbɜːrɡər/; born March 2, 1982), nicknamed Big Ben , is an American football quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League (NFL).

As was the case when Cincinnati Bengals safety Shawn Williams took a cheap shot on Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck in Week 1, Reid was ejected for hitting Roethlisberger. Reid head-hunted the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, nailing him in the head with his shoulder, after Roethlisberger gave himself up and was sliding at the end of a run.

Steelers didn’t like Eric Reid’s hit

The Panthers were losing 38-14 when Roethlisberger took off on a run. Maybe it was a frustration hit from Reid. Either way, it was entirely unnecessary.

Roethlisberger was hit long after he slid by Reid, who launched himself at Roethlisberger’s head. Multiple Steelers offensive linemen took offense and got in Reid’s face. That was expected, so was the Reid ejection after officials conferred for a few moments.

Steelers, Le’Veon Bell move closer to the final deadline

Steelers, Le’Veon Bell move closer to the final deadline Within the next nine days, Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell either will show up, or he won’t.

Reid has been in the news often over the past year. He said the NFL was colluding to keep him out of a job due to him taking a knee next to Colin Kaepernick during the national anthem. He was signed by the Panthers, then confronted Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins before the game due to disagreements over the Players Coalition.
