San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's decision to sit while the national anthem is being played in protest of what he considers police brutality has sparked strong reaction across the sports world. Here's what some current and former players and coaches have said about the controversy:
The Dallas Cowboys have waived defensive end Shaneil Jenkins, cornerback Jeremiah McKinnon and linebacker James Morris on injury settlements and placed cornerback Josh Thomas on season-ending injured reserve.
After watching DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry run through his first-team defense with relative ease during the third exhibition game, Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said he took those struggles personally as a former NFL linebacker who prides himself on having a stout defense.
The New England Patriots made a few moves Monday, placing offensive lineman Tre' Jackson on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, and waiving defensive lineman Terrance Knighton and center Bryan Stork.
