Marshall takes knee again for national anthem

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

True to his word, Brandon Marshall of the Denver Broncos took a knee again Sunday for the national anthem. 

Marshall has received plenty of support and criticism over his decision to join San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players in a cry for social change.

Marshall even lost some endorsements, but said he would continue his protest.

Marshall also met with Denver police Chief Robert White this past week to discuss his call for better police training and treatment of minorities.

Marshall and Kaepernick were college teammates at Nevada.

Among the anthem reactions at other games that were starting late Sunday: San Diego Chargers offensive linemen Joe Barksdale and Chris Hairston held up their right fists during the national anthem before their game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. There was also a malfunction with the giant American flag, which appeared to have a bunch or knot in the middle and the Marines and sailors weren't able to fully unfurl it.
   -- The Seattle Seahawks again linked arms during the national anthem, while the Rams assumed their usual line of players on the sideline. Defensive lineman Robert Quinn again raised his right fist in the air during the anthem. He was not joined by receiver Kenny Britt, who raised his fist before the Rams' opener.
