Week 8 Preview Houston Texans at Seattle Seahawks

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick launched the anthem protests in 2016, refusing to stand for "The Star-Spangled Banner" to draw attention to racial injustice by law enforcement agencies.

Most of the Houston Texans roster took a knee and linked arms together during the National Anthem on Sunday in Seattle. There were reports that something would be done by players on the team before Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Before the game, writer and civil rights activist Sean King tweeted that he'd spoken with several Texans about the protest and many said they really didn't want to play.

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta reported that about 10 players remained standing.

McNair did not meet with the players on Friday after the comment but instead waited until Saturday morning to apologize personally - which reportedly bothered some of the team's players. The New York Times said about 40 players in all refused to stand.

Spain deny Mali another World Cup final
The match is nicely poised as the battle between football's two big virtues: Mali's relentless attack and Spain's resilience. England celebrated their first ever entry into the U-17 World Cup final and people back home were mightily impressed.

The Houston Texans all got on the plane for the team's game against the Seattle Seahawks, but that doesn't mean the controversy over owner Bob McNair's comments is over.

The players were widely reported to have been planning an en masse demonstration against McNair over his choice of words.

McNair's comments were revealed in an ESPN The Magazine feature story published on Friday that gave an inside account of the NFL's prolonged struggles with their response to national anthem protests.

In arguing for the league to do something, McNair said they can't have "inmates running the prison."

The Seahawks were also seen sitting during the national anthem as well.
