Elsewhere in the NFL, Miami Dolphins wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson knelt during the anthem and linebacker Robert Quinn raised his fist.

National anthem protests returned to the NFL Thursday, as two Miami Dolphins players took a knee and one of their teammates raised a fist during "The Star Spangled Banner" ahead of the team's preseason opener.

Defensive end Michael Bennett walked out of the tunnel as the anthem played and "spent the anthem walking toward the bench", the news outlet reported.

In Florida, Jalen Ramsey, Telvin Smith, Leonard Fournette and T.J. Yeldon of the Jacksonville Jaguars did not show up on the field before their game against the New Orleans Saints until after the anthem was over, according to Florida-Times Union reporter Phillip Heilman. The league has been under pressure from President Trump and his followers to take action against players who take a knee in a silent protest against racism. It was not immediately clear how many saw signs of protest.

The Dolphins players weren't the only ones to renew their protests as the preseason began Thursday night. The NFL instituted a new policy in March that banned kneeling, but the policy was suspended as the league and NFLPA try and work toward a compromise.
