Trio of Titans raised fists in protest after anthem ended (The Associated Press)

A trio of Tennessee Titans say they raised their right fists in the air after the national anthem ended to honor the victims and heroes of 9/11, and to bring attention to the ongoing unequal treatment of African-Americans and other minorities. Pro Bowl defensive lineman Jurrell Casey, cornerback Jason McCourty and linebacker Wesley Woodyard all had hands over their hearts during the anthem before Sunday’s season opener against Minnesota. McCourty said Monday that they want to help bridge a gap in equality for everyone, specifically African-Americans.
