Texans Receiver, Kenny Stills, Kneels During National Anthem In First Game With Houston (VIDEO)

Kenny Stills in his first game with the Houston Texans decided to take a stand (or a knee) during the National Anthem. It seems he was the only one of his teammates that did so. The video is here:

Source (USA Sports) – Kenny Stills might be on a new team, but his efforts to raise awareness for social injustice issues continue.

Carrying on what was started by then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2016, the new Houston Texans wide receiver knelt during the national anthem before Monday night’s game against the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Stills and left tackle Laremy Tunsil were traded from the Miami Dolphins to the Texans on Aug. 31. 

Before departing Miami, Stills had been critical of Dolphins owner Stephen Ross’ contributions to President Donald Trump. Stills called out Ross as hypocritical because his non-profit RISE’s mission statement illuminates “equality” and combats racial discrimination. On Aug. 6, he tweeted, “you can’t have a non profit with this mission statement then open your doors to Trump.” Afterward, Stills said he received death threats. 

Kenny Still did catch the biggest catch of the night giving the Texans a one-point lead with 30 seconds left, on the road, in New Orleans.

With only 30 seconds to go, the Saints came back and won the game on a long field goal. It was quite the start to Monday Night Football.
