Colin Kaepernick is not backing down from choosing to sit out the National Anthem and after Thursday’s (Sept. 1) game, it looks like he is not alone in the fight. As Kaepernick took a knee during the preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks, he was joined by his teammate, safety Eric Reid, and Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane.
After a week of pig socks and backlash from everyone nationwide, including his birth mother, Kaepernick must feel at ease that he is supported in the league. Rumors have emerged about the league’s owners not being happy with Kaepernick’s stance.
Check out footage of Colin from Thursday night’s game above.
