Philadelphia Eagles players Malcolm Jenkins and De’Vante Bausby also raised their fists during the anthem. According to USA Today, other players remained in the locker room during the anthem: Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, linebacker Telvin Smith, and running backs Leonard Fournette and T.J. Yeldon.

Meanwhile, Eagles players including Alshon Jeffery, Shelton Gibson, Danny Ezechukwu, and Kamar Aiken wore pregame shirts bearing statistics about racial inequality in U.S. prisons and voter disenfranchisement.

The shirts appear to be part of the Players Coalition’s efforts to raise awareness about social issues. Earlier this month, Patriots safety Devin McCourty wore and distributed shirts that read #SchoolsNotPrisons, advocating against the school-to-prison pipeline. Though the coalition itself has been divided at times, generally NFL players with a desire to shine a light on injustice haven’t been cowed into submission by the NFL’s blustering about anthem protests.
