Philadelphia Eagles Malcolm Jenkins, who plays safety, and De'Vante Bausby, a cornerback, also raised their fists, according to The Philadelphia Enquirer.

Select members of the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles protested during the playing of the national anthem before their preseason games on Thursday.

Some players held their fists in the air, while others chose to kneel, despite the controversy surrounding the action.

Wilson signed a three-year contract with the Dolphins this offseason. Teammate Chris Long reportedly "placed his arm around Jenkins' shoulder" during the song. Quinn stood and raised his right fist, as he did during the anthem last season with the Rams.

The Miami Herald reported that Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills, along with wide receiver Albert Wilson, knelt during the anthem before a home game against Tampa Bay.

Kawhi thanks SA in 1st statement since trade
THANK YOU to the fans! "I'll never forget what we have shared and accomplished together", Leonard wrote . DeRozan openly criticized Masai Ujiri, claiming the Raptors president promised he wouldn't trade him.

The move marks a resumption of the National Football League players decision to protest during the playing of the pre-game anthem in order to raise awareness about social injustice in the US.

The rule would have fined teams whose players protested during the anthem, but allowed the teams the choice to wait in the locker room or tunnel while the anthem was performed.

Their actions came weeks after the league shelved its new policy regarding conduct surrounding the anthem until it reaches an agreement with the NFL Players Association. Individual teams would be responsible for disciplining any demonstrators.

It was a show of solidarity with the ongoing protests against police brutality and racial injustice, launched by former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2016 and banned by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in May.
