Details on What Eagles Plan to Do During National Anthem for Monday Night Football

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles plan to join protest of the national antem.

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said Friday on Sportsradio 94WIP he and a number of teammates have discussed kneeling, sitting or raising a fist during the playing of the national anthem.

“Last week, we talked about doing some stuff, but we wanted to make sure that we didn’t do anything to take away from the families that suffered from 9/11,” Jenkins said, according to Ray Boyd of CBS Philly. “We didn’t want to mess with that day, so we left last week alone. But moving forward, I’m sure there will be guys that will probably join in.

“For me, it has nothing to do with this country or the flag or the anthem in itself. Really it’s just to continue to push forward the conversation about social injustice, and that’s a range of things from police brutality to wages and job opportunities, education. There’s just a lot of things systematically that have been set up in this country since its inception that put minorities, especially African-Americans, at a disadvantage when you talk about quality of life and actually growing in this country.

“So we want to continue to keep that conversation going and push it to as many people as we can obviously while doing our part in bringing forth change,” Jenkins said. “Obviously this has been a hot topic, and the more players that join in, the further this conversation goes.”

The Eagles will play the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.
