Eric Reid called his return to the National Football League on Sunday "bittersweet", saying it still hurts that his friend Colin Kaepernick has been "robbed" of his dream to play again in the NFL.
Bruce Springsteen looked the way a lot of NY Giants fans felt Sunday after a gut-wrenching loss against the Carolina Panthers. with the game slipping away in the final seconds. He later added in his press conference that he doesn't consider Reid's political views and demonstrates "a distraction".
Beckham's game began with a one-handed catch near the sideline on the Giants' second offensive play of the game.
Because the way things are going for the Giants at the moment, it actually might be better for him if the focus remains on the off-field stuff. This will be the first game the Panthers face their former general manager Dave Gettleman, who has taken over that role for the Giants. After the game Reid wore a shirt that read "Know your rights" and listed 10 points. He ultimately chose to kneel, saying "I've always told myself when the time comes to stop kneeling, I will stop".
"I just did what I'm supposed to do when they put the ball in my hands", he said after the game.
According to head coach Pat Shurmur, running back Saquon Barkley is "fine" after appearing to injure his knee in Sunday's game.
Prithvi Shaw youngest Indian to crack hundred on debut
Shaw became India's second-youngest century maker after Sachin Tendulkar as he reached three figures early in the second session. While Shaw punched and drove effortlessly off pacers, he was equally comfortable against the spin duo of Bishoo and Chase.
Reid was the only player to kneel during the "Star Spangled Banner", continuing the protest he began while playing for the San Francisco 49ers.
"I'm still evaluating the scope of our country, and I'll make that decision later", he said last week.
Reid famously knelt next to Colin Kaepernick to protest racial injustice and spent quite a bit of time on the free agency market despite being a well-qualified and heralded safety.
Reid, who is African-American, said after signing a one-year contract with Carolina that he plans to "continue to speak for my people" and use his platform to talk about injustices. "I publicly declared that I didn't agree with his comments and I asked anybody that was interested if they wanted clarification [to] go to Odell because he's a big man". Because it's not that way right now. "But that has absolutely nothing to do with this locker room, the way we approach the game, the way we prepare - which is to go out there and win".
