Chris and Kyle Long, who grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia, watched in dismay as their hometown was besieged by violence and hate rallies over the weekend.
Titans lineman DaQuan Jones is worried that if he continues his post-national anthem protests, he'll be labeled as "a Colin Kaepernick" and it will hurt his career.
Last year, Brooks joined Jenkins in raising a fist for multiple weeks before being sidelined by a ruptured quad tendon.
Sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter in March that Kaepernick would stand during the national anthem this upcoming season.
Jenkins is one of several players who have continued the protest in Kaepernick's absence, while others across the league have voiced their support for the cause and concern over whether the quarterback is being blackballed as a result of his actions.
