Robert Quinn, a defensive end for the Dolphins, raised his fist.

Defensive end Michael Bennett walked out of the tunnel as the anthem played and "spent the anthem walking toward the bench", the news outlet reported.

During pregame warmups, multiple Eagles players wore T-shirts raising awareness about voter registration and prison populations. The NFL said in May that players had to stand at attention or stay in the locker room, with teams facing fines and individual players subject to team penalties. The Daily News said Eagles captain Malcolm Jenkins and cornerback De'Vante Bausby raised their fists.

The players' union filed a grievance about the policy change, and late last month, the new policy was put on hold while the NFL and NFL Players Association work on a resolution.

Kaepernick applauded the Dolphins players shortly after the display for their protest of "systemic oppression".

There were no other actions by either Seattle or Indianapolis players during the performance of anthem.

It sparked a national discussion about patriotism, and drew sharp vitriol from President Trump, who condemned those who kneeled as disrespectful to America. It happened before the Dolphins game against the Buccaneers, and former Chief Albert Wilson was one of the players who took a knee.

After confusion, the National Football League chose to take its new policy back to the drawing board and consult with the players association. "In order to allow this constructive dialogue to continue, we have come to a standstill agreement on the NFLPA's grievance and on the NFL's anthem policy".
