How Many Players Knelt For The National Anthem Today

Buffalo Bills players kneel for national anthem.

Here's how many players knelt for the national anthem today.

Last week, close to 200 players did not stand for the national anthem before their NFL game. The kneeling and sitting came after Donald Trump said the "sons of bitches" who don't stand for The Star-Spangled Banner deserve to be suspended or kicked out of the league.

ESPN's Darren Rovell says the official number was roughly 180 last week.

This week: only 11.

Here are some the players who kneeled today:

There are still the 4 p.m. E.T. games, the Sunday night game and the Monday night game to come, so that number will likely increase, but it will still end up being significantly lower than last week, barring something unforeseen.
