Colts on choice to kneel for anthem: ‘We have a responsibility to speak up for those who cannot’

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The Indianapolis Colts released a statement before Sunday night’s game about their decision to kneel during the national anthem last week.

The statement, from the players, says the team “did not intend to disrespect” the flag, but chose to protest for injustices throughout the country.

“As NFL players, we have a platform. And as Americans, we have a responsibility to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,” the statement read.
