    The Cowboys have not had a player join the national anthem protest since Colin Kaepernick became a face of the movement last season. That will change tonight, according to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

    Not every player might participate, according to Hill, but at least some will.

    “It’s not going to be business as usual,” a player told Hill. “[President Trump] crossed a line. Something will be done.”

    Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Saturday he did not expect any of his players to protest. That, though, came before Sunday’s outpouring of protests around the league. Some teams linked arms. Some stayed in the locker room for the national anthem. Some had individual players take a knee.

    Garrett has made it clear he likes his team to stand during the national anthem.

    “The national anthem is sacred. Our flag is sacred. And our team has demonstrated that,” Garrett said last month.

    I love my Cowboys, but any political stuff either way makes me want to just go to bed.

    Doesn't bother me at all.
    You want a solution. Stop playing the anthem at non international sporting events. It's ridiculous

    I hope this is baseless and we just play ball and skip the drama. But pressure is building on JJ.

    If the Cowboys kneel during the anthem that will put an end to my football season.

    IMO I don't think Jerry is going to tell his players anything, he may encourage them not to do it

    I think that's a good solution, it takes the opportunity for stuff like this to enter into the game.

    I don't care what any of the players do until after the whistle blows, but I am curious if some posters on here and fans carry through with their claims to renounce the team. I could see some of my very close family members having a real issue.

    I'll still be a fan.

    I, for one, and looking forward to all the tough talkers trying to fulfill their promises when we're hoisting that Lombardi soon.

    Pretty much this.

    And the NFL started it by allowing the military to use that time for their ads.

    It is what it is at this point. Just hope it's a good game.
