No players knelt during the anthem that night.

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

Goodell announced the new anthem policy ― which requires players to "stand and show respect for the flag and anthem ― in response to the growing number of National Football League players who were joining Kaepernick's movement to spread awareness about racial injustice, sparking controversy nationwide".

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.

Dolphins defensive end Robert Quinn raised his right fist.

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, an outspoken advocate for social justice causes, raised his fist during the playing of the national anthem, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett, a frequent protestor previous year when he played for the Seattle Seahawks, walked out of the tunnel as the anthem played.

Select members of the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles protested during the playing of the national anthem before their preseason games on Thursday. Lineman Chris Long placed a supportive arm around Jenkins. Players who do not want to stand during the anthem are allowed to remain in the locker room (or in the tunnel) without facing punishment.

Jefferson, Jackson and Brown were among the Seahawks players who sat during the anthem last season. The NFL instituted a new policy in March that banned kneeling, but the policy was suspended as the league and NFLPA try and work toward a compromise.
