Brandon Marshall Kneels During National Anthem Before Broncos-Panthers Game


Colin Kaepernick isn’t alone in his national anthem protest.

Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall silently protested during the “The Star-Spangled Banner” when he took a knee prior to Denver’s opening game against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday.

Marshall became the latest NFL player to kneel just a few weeks after Kaepernick sat down during the national anthem as he protested racial inequality in America. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback since has switched to kneeling during the anthem, and athletes such as Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane and U.S. women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe have joined the protest.

The Seahawks are considering kneeling as a team during the “The Star-Spangled Banner” on Sunday.
