It’s week 4, and although the protesting the Anthem story has slowed down, some players are still sticking to their guns and protesting during the anthem. Here are the players who protested in Week 4 via ESPN. I wonder how many more weeks these guys will keep this up, especially considering  it seems no one cares at this point.-TO

San Francisco 49ers: 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, safety Eric Reid and linebacker Eli Harold continued to kneel during the national anthem, before the matchup against the Cowboys. Safeties Jaquiski Tartt and Antoine Bethea and cornerbacks Rashard Robinson and Keith Reaser also again raised their right fists during the anthem. — Nick Wagoner
