Most of NFL's Houston Texans kneel during anthem after owner's 'inmates' remark

Week 8 Preview Houston Texans at Seattle Seahawks

Instead, the vast majority of the team took a knee during the anthem before its game vs. the Seattle Seahawks.

The Texans had debated how best to protest their owner's comments from this month, revealed this week in an ESPN story, that, "We can't have the inmates running the prison".

On Friday, several Texans players reportedly walked out of practice, but later returned following the comments. And that's exactly what they did before Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Brown told ESPN on Sunday morning that he believed "up to 65 to 70 percent" of the team would kneel during the national anthem.

Unfortunately, Deshaun Watson had nearly the ideal game under center for the Texans, with four touchdowns of his own to counter against Wilson.

The players were widely reported to have been planning an en masse demonstration against McNair over his choice of words.

But discussion of the matter at the Fall League Meeting yielded no change in the NFL policy that players "should" stand for the anthem. I never meant to offend anyone and I was not referring to our players.

"I was referring to the relationship between the league office and team owners and how they have been making significant strategic decisions affecting our league without adequate input from ownership over the past few years", McNair said. Since then, players all across the league have come out against his comments.

The league-wide protests began early in the 2016 season when Colin Kaepernick chose to take a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality and inequality against minorities.
