ESPNreported some Texans wanted to walk out of practice Friday before all but two - receiver DeAndre Hopkins and running back D'Onta Foreman - chose to go on with the usual workout. Most of the players later returned to practice, while coaching staff talked remaining players out of protesting.
This morning, an ESPN story about the NFL's meetings between players and owners about the protests during the national anthem was released, providing a look into the meetings that bad some of the league's owners look pretty bad.
Houston Texans owner Bob McNair has apologized after making an analogy about the NFL allowing players to kneel in protest during the national anthem.
O'Brien said he expects Hopkins to be on the team plane to fly to Seattle on Saturday and that the wide receiver will play Sunday against the Seahawks.
Despite the apology, Texans players are planning a huge protest to retaliate against the owner's words, which will take place before their game on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.
Sherman said, "If he (McNair) was our owner, I would feel strongly". "I think it was embarrassing".
After issuing his first apology for his comments on Friday, reports stated McNair met with the Texans players to apologize for what he said. "I would never characterise our players or our league that way and I apologise to anyone who was offended by it".
When asked if he would consider not playing Sunday, Brown said, "I don't know". But as far as myself, I don't (have a thought on that).
Hopkins did not return to practice along with his teammates, a decision ESPN reporter Adam Schefter said was directly related to McNair's comments.
But the comment didn't go unchecked - Troy Vincent, a former NFL player who is now the NFL's Exec. V.P. of Football Operations stood up and told the group he was offended.
He said, "I think the comments were disrespectful, I think it was ignorant, I think it was embarrassing". "We put our bodies and minds on the line every time we step on the field. I told them if I had it to do over again I wouldn't use that expression".
