Player demonstrations took place during the national anthem at several early NFL preseason games Thursday night. In Miami, Kenny Stills and two other Dolphins players protested during the anthem before their 26-24 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In other games Thursday, four Jaguars players were not on the field when the anthem was played before their home game against New Orleans, and team officials said it would be up to the players to explain why they weren’t on the field. At Baltimore, both teams stood, but while most of the Ravens lined up shoulder to shoulder on the sideline, second-year linebacker Tim Williams stood alone in front of the bench with his back toward the field. And in Seattle, three Seahawks players ran into the tunnel leading to the team’s locker room before the playing of the anthem.
