Linebacker Brandon Marshall and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas weren't with their teammates on the sideline for the national anthem prior to the Denver Broncos' game against the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday night.
Marshall and Thomas emerged from the tunnel behind the Broncos' bench after the anthem was over.
In Arizona [url=http://www.texanscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-jon-weeks-jersey]Jon Weeks Jersey[/url] , Los Angeles Chargers starting left tackle Russell Okung raised his fist during the anthem prior to the team's game against the Cardinals.
The league and the NFL players' union have yet to announce a policy for this season regarding demonstrations during the anthem after the league initially ordered everyone to stand on the sideline when the anthem is played, or remain in the locker room.
Marshall has knelt in the past during the national anthem, following the lead of his college teammate [url=http://www.bengalscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-geno-atkins-jersey]Geno Atkins Jersey[/url] , Colin Kaepernick, who started the protests in 2016 to bring attention to social injustices. They played together at Nevada.
Thomas hasn't been involved in the demonstrations but he wore the Malcom Jenkins "You ain't listening" T-shirt at a pre-camp barbecue last month.
Okung stood with his fist raised behind the rest of the Chargers players, who lined up on the sideline for the anthem.
This story has been corrected to note that Okung's first name is Russell [url=http://www.broncoscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-todd-davis-jersey]Todd Davis Jersey[/url] , not Richard.
Colts defensive end Chris McCain has pleaded not guilty to two counts of misdemeanor battery.
Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star reports that McCain entered that plea during an arraignment this week. McCain is accused of spitting on and grabbing the neck of a woman on January 7 and Holder reports the court ordered McCain to stay at least 100 yards away from his accuser.
McCain, who denied the charges when they were made and denies even knowing his accuser, is scheduled for another hearing on August 21.
McCain was under contract to the Chargers at that time of the alleged incident and the Chargers initially tendered him as a restricted free agent before rescinding that tender in April. The Colts signed him in May [url=http://www.broncoscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-andy-janovich-jersey]Andy Janovich Jersey[/url] , but McCain did not take part in voluntary workouts or the team’s minicamp after being charged in early June. There’s no word on plans for training camp with the matter still unresolved.
