A majority of Houston Texans players knelt during the national anthem on Sunday to protest controversial comments made by team owner Bob McNair.

McNair, who has since apologized for the comments, said that the NFL "can't have the inmates running the prison" for not punishing players who do not stand for the national anthem.

McNair did not meet with players until Saturday, a day after two Texans offensive players, DeAndre Hopkins and D'Onta Foreman, skipped practice in response.

The Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans went at it in the ideal football game on Sunday, and fans were treated to a home victory in an absolute shootout in Week 8.

Despite rumors that the players would remove the Texans decals from their helmets, they ended up leaving them on.

Meanwhile, Brown has had his own issues with the Texans, centering mainly around contract issues.

What do economists make of the GDP figures?
The rise is above expectations of 0.3%, as economists predicted growth in line with the first and second quarters of 2017. Inflation in the United Kingdom has jumped to a five-and-a-half year high at 3%, while wage growth remains subdued.

The players were widely reported to have been planning an en masse demonstration against McNair over his choice of words.

McNair reportedly made the comments last week during an National Football League owner's meeting.

But McNair's seeming comparison of the league's players to "inmates" sparked a bitter backlash from players across the league - and even from players in other sports.

It is the first time this year that any Texans players have demonstrated during the anthem, beyond when the team stood with linked arms during Week 3.

He added: "I am truly sorry to the players for how this has impacted them and the perception that it has created for me which could not be further from the truth". Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started protesting last season by sitting on the bench.
