Yesterday was the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks final preseason game, and all eyes were on Kaepernick as he took a seat during the patriotic moment. But people were surprised when teammate Eric Reid and Seattle Seahawk Jeremy Lane sat out as well in response to strained race relations in America, specifically against African-Americans.

The two teams are known to be bitter rivals, but the Lane didn’t hesitate to support Kaepernick.

It’s something I plan to keep on doing until justice is being served,” Lane told reporters after the game.

Seahawk Coach Pete Carroll even sees the importance of the controversial actions:

Our team has been working at it and we’ve been in the process of communicating about a lot of stuff right now. That was an individual thing, but I’m really proud of the progress that we’re making in the conversation and I look forward to continue it with our guys,” he said Thursday night.

With the official NFL season kicking off Thursday, September 8, more players are sure to make their stance clear.
