OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) The Baltimore Ravens have decided against disclosing their planned course of action during the national anthem this Sunday at home against Pittsburgh.

The team met this week to discuss how to react on the sideline during the national anthem. A decision has been reached, but it won't be shared.

Safety Eric Weddle said Wednesday: "We've talked, we've had meetings. What we've talked about is between us."

About a dozen players took a knee on the sideline during the anthem before the game last week in London. Others, along with coach John Harbaugh, stood with arms locked.

The display came after President Donald Trump deemed that players who kneel during the national anthem should be fired.

Weddle said, "A lot of guys on this team were affected a great deal by what our president said."

Quarterback Joe Flacco said the team stands united, even if some stand during the national anthem while others kneel.

Flacco says, "Nobody is trying to offend anybody and pick sides."
