The first interception was taken by Telvin Smith off a deflection from the line of scrimmage and taken 28 yards for a touchdown. On the next drive, Jalen Ramsey deflected a pass into the arms of Barry Church who took it 51 yards for another touchdown that gave the Jaguars a 20-9 lead.
Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who is credited for starting the movement by kneeling during the national anthem, was invited but did not attend the meeting, according to Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins. Jenkins said he did not know why.
Kaepernick’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, issued a statement clarifying the invitation.
Colin Kaepernick was not invited to attend today’s meeting by any official from the NFL or any team executives, he said. Other players wanted him present and have asked that he attend the next meeting with the goal of forging a lasting and faithful consensus around these issues. Mr. Kaepernick is open to future participation on these important discussions.
Randolph then showed a replay from afar, followed by a top down shot of Hayward. TNT showed the medical team taking care of Hayward but the cameras did not get too close. Viewers saw Hayward coming off court on a stretcher shaking his head and then another camera gave a brief shot of him being wheeled into the locker room. Over the next three quarters, reporter Kristen Ledlow provided updates on Hayward’s condition and possible transfer points from the arena. (The Celtics announced that Hayward fractured his left ankle.)
From the joint NFL-NFLPA statement last week on the meeting, the goal is to seek “a continuation of how to make progress on the important social issues that players have vocalized.”
The national anthem became a talking point in the NFL last season after Kaepernick started sitting for in protest of the police brutality and inequalities that people of color in America still face today. Kaepernick switched from sitting to a kneel, and other players followed his example.
