Some NFL players continued to protest during the national anthem on Sunday, after President Trump repeatedly criticized the league for its handling of the demonstrations.

Seven San Francisco 49ers kneeled during the anthem Sunday. Those players were safeties Eric Reid and Adrian Colbert, linebackers Dekoda Watson and Eli Harold, receiver Marquise Goodwin, defensive lineman Arik Armstead, and cornerback K’Waun Williams, according to ESPN.

Miami Dolphins players stood for the anthem while wide receiver Kenny Stills, safety Michael Thomas and tight end Julius Thomas remained off the field. The trio previously knelt during the anthem, but Dolphins coach Adam Gase implemented a policy requiring all players to stand, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

Most New Orleans Saints players knelt before the anthem played on Sunday. ESPN reports that all the players then stood while the anthem played and that some locked arms. The team was met with boos as they knelt — and cheers as they stood up.
