CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Carolina Panthers coach Matt Rhule said he's considering kneeling alongside his players during the national anthem this season in support of the movement against racial injustice.
"I would consider anything as we move forward," Rhule said Thursday on a Zoom conference call. "I'm supportive of the cause. I'm supportive of the movement. I'm supportive of social justice. I think for every person, coach or player, that will be a very personal decision. I think it has to be made at the right time and the right reason for everybody."
The first-year coach hired from Baylor previously has told his players that he will support them for expressing their views about social injustice.
