Lynch sits during national anthem vs. Cardinals

theScore logo theScore 8/13/2017

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch became the latest athlete to not stand during the national anthem ahead of Saturday's preseason game versus the Arizona Cardinals.

The Raiders star, who sat out the 2016 season and came out of retirement this spring, is the latest NFL player to protest during the anthem, joining Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins - who will continue to do so this year - and free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, among others.

No other players joined Lynch on Saturday.

The protest came amid a day of violence, with a group of white nationalists storming the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville. A vehicle drove into a group of counter-protesters, killing at least one person and injuring numerous others.
