Three members of the Miami Dolphins continued the widespread NFL protests on Sunday morning in London, England.
Ahead of their Week 4 clash with the New Orleans Saints, the Dolphins trio took a knee as Darius Rucker sang his rendition of the national anthem. They were the only three players to take a knee, while other members of the Dolphins stood on the sideline and the Saints interlocked arms after kneeling prior to the “Star Spangled Banner.”
The three Miami players to kneel were wide receivers Kenny Stills and Michael Thomas, and tight end Julius Thomas.
None of the players were shown up close during the broadcast, but they could be spotted from afar.
James Palmer of the NFL Network, who is on the scene in London, got a closer look.

Last week, more than 250 players kneeled during the anthem as the protests gained steam following divisive and vulgar comments from Donald Trump. Just how many players continue the protests this Sunday remains to be seen. However, FOX Sports has said they will not show any more national anthems this Sunday.
Miami and New Orleans are scoreless after the first quarter.
