65 -70 Percent of Houston Texans planning to kneel or raise their fist for the National Anthem in protest of Bob McNair comments

Houston Texans players are reportedly planning a unified protest before Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks after controversial remarks by the team owner.



FOX NEWS:


The players could decide to all kneel together or protest by raising their fists, the source told ESPN.
Texans left tackle Duane Brown told ESPN he anticipates "up to 65 to 70 percent" of the team's players could kneel as part of the protest in Seattle, adding the players would not remove the team's decals from their helmets as had been discussed.
McNair's remarks caused a firestorm of criticism from athletes inside and outside the NFL and prompted an initial apology from the 79-year-old Friday.
"I know they were upset," McNair told the Houston Chronicle about his meeting with the players. "I wanted to answer their questions. I told them if I had it to do over again I wouldn't use that expression."
