Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid took a knee during the national anthem before Sundays game against the New York Giants in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Reid was the only player to kneel during the Star Spangled Banner, continuing the protest he began while playing for the San Francisco 49ers. He was the first Panthers player ever to kneel during the national anthem.
Sunday also marked Reids return to the NFL after signing with the Panthers on Sept. 27. He and Kaepernick filed a grievance against the league alleging teams colluded against signing him during free agency because of the kneeling controversy. Despite signing a one-year contract with the Panthers, Reid told ESPN he will continue with the case "without a doubt."
Prior to Sundays game, Reid said he was still considering whether he will continue the protest.
"I'm still evaluating the scope of our country, and I'll make that decision later," he said last week.
However, Reid made it clear he would continue to fight against racial and social injustice along with Kaepernick. Reid, who is African-American, said he will continue to "stand up for my people."

Hell, it’s a lot shorter and easier than giving ‘em an IQ test.
Stop watching football
If they want to kill their own brand, let them.
Interesting to see the owner allow a weekly UFL thread here. Unamerican Football League.
“I’m still evaluating the scope of our country”
Looking forward to your report with great anticipation.
By the way, two weeks back, I heard that both the Patriots and the Oakland Raiders were considering inviting Kaepernick to test for their teams. What happened with that?
Or was Kaep’s lawyer wrong for the second time in a row?
OH good grief! I don’t watch the NFL usually but stumbled on the Panthers game today and watched 5 minutes of it. Had I known about this outrage, I wouldn’t have given it one second of viewing.
Good. Love watching this retarded game crash and burn.
I am going to wish him luck. Break a leg or arm or . . .
Screw the NFL all to Hell.
If the nfl were broadcasted like mlb rather than on TV over the air, the nfl would be finished.
Is it football season? Hm.
Apparently that asshat Goodell called Trump and thanked him for opening up Canada what was that about?
He must be tired from all that comunity change he brought during his off-season days.
As of yet, I have not engaged in active opposition, but if this BS continues, that is the next step
Who is Eric Reid?
And, who are the Carolina Panthers?
And, why should I or any other American care?
Now. I could care less. Haven't watched a game since the whole take knee mess started.
An unknown player on an unknown team in an unknown city...
Tell me more...
