Four more 49ers kneel during national anthem before game vs. Panthers

Sunday September 18th, 2016

Four 49ers players joined teammates Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid in kneeling during the national anthem on Sunday. 

Before San Francisco’s game against the Panthers, Antoine Bethea, Eli Harold, Jaquiski Tartt and Rashard Robinson all took a knee and raised their fists. 

Dolphins linebacker Jelani Jenkins, who wrote in TIME earlier this week that he would stand for the anthem after kneeling last week, did stand. The three other Dolphins players who kneeled last week—Arian Foster, Michael Thomas and Kenny Stills—kneeled again. 

Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters and Patriots players Martellus Bennett and Devin McCourty also demonstrated during the national anthem last week
