Will Panthers DB Eric Reid protest during national anthem?

Several high-profile Carolina players said they were prepared to support Reid, a 2013 Pro Bowl selection, if he protested. "I haven't been in the place where I felt like I could really go out and do everything that I'm capable of doing", Beckham said.

Smith said "no one cares" if he kneels during the national anthem. "But that's not the way it works. Eric is a social justice warrior, continues to support his family and communities in need".

Carolina Panthers' Eric Reid (25) kneels during the national anthem before an NFL football game against the New York Giants in Charlotte, N.C., Sunday, Oct. 7, 2018.

No Panthers player joined Reid in the demonstration on Sunday.

"He's a great player", Newton said. That's the real part of this, and that's where we're at.

"Even though we're 1-4", Beckham said, "this game today is going to be monumental for our season in my eyes". "Matter of fact, he's going to come watch film with us just, so I can tell him that he's lucky I wear the red jersey in practice".

With a large American flag in the middle of the field, Reid went to his right knee as the "The Star-Spangled Banner" was sung by Marc Martel.

South Korean ex-leader Lee gets 15-year term for corruption
Former President Lee Myung-bak walks towards the Seoul Central District Court to attend his corruption trial on September 6, 2018. The court sided with prosecutors, saying Lee is the real owner of DAS and used it to create a slush fund.

The good news for the New York Giants was that they were finally able to end their two-plus year streak of scoring fewer than 30 points per game.

The Giants have had some complaints about the referees in recent weeks, just as most National Football League defenses have. He said him and another receiver kind of ran their routes into each other.

But Giants coach Pat Shurmur confirmed after the game that Barkley was fine and moving with no issue after the game. But surprisingly he has yet to have 20 carries in a game this year.

Video of this NY fan's reaction to the loss is going viral on social media. Expect Barkley to either double his carries this week or have backup Wayne Gallman carry more than twice. However, Stewart suffered a foot injury that landed him on injured reserve this past week.

But the Giants roared back. Shurmur thinks that could give the defense a boost, saying "when you have a fresh body that has the talent, the skill and abilities of a pass rusher, it helps your defense". Four passes, 75 yards. and nearly no resistance whatsoever. That could be a major problem this week with Newton taking snaps.

Entering this season, it was expected to be a three team race between the New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons and the Panthers. Not only that, but the team held running back Saquon Barkley - the No. 2 overall pick in spring's NFL Draft - to just 48 rushing yards on five attempts. Christian McCaffrey had 93 yards from scrimmage and an 18-yard touchdown catch for the Panthers (3-1). So it shouldn't be too hard to figure out what Carolina wants to do Sunday.
