NFL players who protested during the national anthem in Week 11

Several NFL players across the league have joined San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick since he began a pregame protest of racial oppression and inequality in the United States by sitting down during the national anthem before a preseason game, then kneeling during the anthem in Week 1. Here are the players who protested in Week 11. (Also of note: A week after sitting during the national anthem to protest Donald Trump's election as president of the United States, Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans stood with teammates before Sunday's game at Kansas City.)

San Francisco 49ers: Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, safety Eric Reid and outside linebacker Eli Harold continued their protest of racial oppression and inequality in the United States by kneeling during the national anthem before their game against the Patriots. No Niners players raised their right fists during the anthem after a group of them did so for the first half of the season. -- Nick Wagoner

Philadelphia Eagles: Safety Malcolm Jenkins raised a fist over his head during the national anthem before Sunday’s game at the Seahawks. He has been protesting since Week 2 against the Chicago Bears. Cornerback Ron Brooks typically protests with him, but has not been present on the sideline the past four games after undergoing surgery to repair a ruptured quad tendon. Jenkins recently discussed at length his reasons for protesting. -- Tim McManus

Seattle Seahawks: The Seahawks linked arms and stood as a demonstration of unity during the national anthem before their game Sunday against the Eagles. They have done so before every game this season. -- Sheil Kapadia

Miami Dolphins: Wide receiver Kenny Stills and safety Michael Thomas knelt for the anthem before the Dolphins' game against the Rams on Sunday. They've done so for every game this season. -- James Walker

Los Angeles Rams: Defensive end Robert Quinn raised his right fist during the national anthem before Sunday's game against the Dolphins, as has been his custom since the start of the regular season. Quinn said he will continue to do so, regardless of whatever backlash he receives on social media. Said Quinn: "People have the right to voice their opinion. It’s up to you whether you listen to it or not. If people feel bad or feel upset about making a stand, that’s their personal opinion and judgment. At the end of the day, I’m just standing up for what I believe is right." -- ESPN.com staff

Tennessee Titans: After the national anthem before the Titans' game against the Colts, linebacker Wesley Woodyard and defensive linemen Jurrell Casey and DaQuan Jones and cornerback Perrish Cox all raised a fist in the air. -- Paul Kuharsky
