Several NFL players have protested during the US national anthem before pre-season games.

Philadelphia Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins and De’Vante Bausby raised a fist, as did San Francisco 49ers’ Marquise Goodwin and Miami Dolphins’ Robert Quinn, while his team-mates Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson kneeled.

The NFL says plans to fine players for anthem protests have been put on hold.

Ex-49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was the first to protest in 2016.

Players who refused to stand during the Star-Spangled Banner said the protests were against police brutality of African Americans and the demonstrations led to criticism from President Donald Trump.
