Watch: Eagles cornerback Ron Brooks kneels during national anthem vs. Bills

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Ron Brooks kneeled during the national anthem before Thursday's preseason game against the Bills at Lincoln Financial Field, continuing the player protests against social injustice spearheaded last season by 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Brooks, who played for the Bills from 2012-15, was one of a handful of Eagles to protest last season by raising fists during the anthem, along with Malcolm Jenkins, Marcus Smith and former UB Bull Steven Means. Jenkins was photographed with his fist raised Thursday as well.

Brooks, who is dealing with a hamstring injury, didn't dress for Thursday's game. He kneeled on the sideline while wearing a hoodie and shorts, as seen in a video captured by WROC-TV's Prescott Rossi.
