49ers-Seahawks National Anthem: More players join in kneeling, fist in the air

New, comment

The San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks are getting underway, and the National Anthem brought with it more on the protest front. According to Jennifer Chan, who is on hand for the game, Eli Harold took a knee with Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid. He had previously held a fist in the air. Additionally, RB Mike Davis, CB Keith Reaser, S Antoine Bethea, S Jaquiski Tartt, and CB Rashard Robinson.

The Seahawks actually played both the Star Spangled Banner and the Canadian National Anthem. The players were not on the field yet when the “Oh Canada” was played.
