Angered by owner McNair's comment, most Texans players kneel for anthem

Not exactly. Several players took a knee during the national anthem before taking on the Seahawks in Seattle.

The Texans had indicated there would be some type of protest following comments by owner Bob McNair.

McNair issued two public apologies via statements distributed by the Texans.

McNair met with the players on Saturday, then released another statement in which he claimed the "inmates" comment was a reference to the league office, not the players.

Some players around the league followed his example in kneeling during the anthem, but the demonstrations had largely fizzled out until last month, when US President Donald Trump reignited the issue by decrying any player who kneeled during the anthem as a "son of a bitch" who should be fired. Left tackle Duane Brown told reporters on Friday that players considered a mass walkout but ultimately chose to practice and fly to Seattle.

The Texans offensive tackle is being targeted by the Seahawks and the team may be willing to part ways with tight end Jimmy Graham for salary-cap reasons to make it happen, NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported. He also reportedly apologized during the meeting in which the comment was made.

Members of the Houston Texans kneel during the national anthem before the game against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field on October 29, 2017, in Seattle, Washington. We put our bodies and minds on the line every time we step on that field, and to use an analogy of inmates in prison, that's disrespectful.

About ten players stood with their hands over their hearts, according to The Houston Chronicle.
