NFL players took their two-year-long protest against the US national anthem into the 2018 preseason this week; kneeling, raising their firsts, or simply remaining in the locker room during the performance of the ‘Star Spangled Banner.’

“NFL players continued to protest during the national anthem on Thursday night as the league began the first full week of its 2018 preseason,” writes Fox News. “Some players held their fists in the air, while others decided to kneel, despite the controversy surrounding the action.”

The NFL released a statement regarding the preseason protests Thursday, saying “The NFL has been engaged in constructive discussions with the NFL Players Association regarding the anthem and issues of equality and social justice that are of concern to many Americans.”

“While those discussions continue, the NFL has agreed to delay implementing or enforcing any club work rules that could result in players being disciplined for their conduct during the performance of the anthem,” the statement adds.
