LONDON -

The New Orleans Saints will stand--and kneel--together before Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.

On Twitter, Saints quarterback Drew Brees announced that the team kneel prior to the national anthem and stand while the anthem is played.

This comes a week after several players knelt or sat during the anthem in protest of both social injustice and President Donald Trump's comments that NFL owners should fire players who engage in on-field demonstrations.
