Miami Dolphins players Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson took a knee during the national anthem before Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, continuing the protest Colin Kaepernick started.

As Stills and Wilson took a knee, defensive end Robert Quinn raised his right fist in the air as part of the protest aimed at raising awareness of social justice issues, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

The three players also took part in the protest last week prior to the Week 1 game.

Stills, who has been engaging in the national anthem protest since 2016, told ESPN that he had no plans to stop.

“We started the protest two years ago now — three years ago now — and we’re not going anywhere,” Stills said Friday. “It’s not going to change. Activism isn’t something you just kind of get involved in and then turn your back on it. Once your eyes are open to some of the things that are happening, you continue to work and try and grow and create change for the rest of your life, so this is something I’m committed to forever.
