Frustration for London-born Ajayi as #JayTrain runs out of steam

Saints Dolphins Football

"Jay's success has given us a player who gains national media attention and can create headlines through scoring TDs in a way that a lineman, for example, can never achieve".

A week after an unprecedented wave of racially-charged protests by players, smaller, scattered demonstrations could be seen as early games kicked off.

A handful of Buffalo Bills players could be seen kneeling for the anthem ahead of their game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Thomas took eight of his 11 targets for 89 yards, while Kamara took all 10 of his receptions for 71 yards for the Saints, who had the ball for 34:28 and had 70 plays for 347 total yards. They then stood for the British anthem, God Save the Queen.

The rookie out of UTEP was the last remaining healthy back active for the game, with fellow rookie Devante Mays inactive. If Montgomery and Williams were to miss next week's game with the Dallas Cowboys, Jones would likely be the starter.

The issue was exacerbated last week when Trump said that players who did not stand during the anthem should be fired.

It is meant to call attention to what the protesting players see as a pattern of racism in the treatment of African-Americans by United States police.

Trump later tweeted video of fans and players standing at an NHL game and wrote: "19,000 RESPECTING our National Anthem!"

Last week, more than 250 players took a knee before the anthem, with the Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks choosing to remain in the locker room during the anthem. Respect our Flag and our Country!

Roger Goodell of National Football League just put out a statement trying to justify the total disrespect certain players show to our country.Tell them to stand!

Three Dolphins - Julius Thomas, Michael Thomas and Kenny Stills - kneeled during the American anthem in defiance of US President Donald Trump. "That's frustrating, and we didn't score any points so that sucks even more".

"As is standard procedure, regionalized coverage of NFL game airing on FOX this Sunday will not show the National Anthem live; however, our cameras are always rolling and we will document the response of players and coaches on the field", the network told Sports Illustrated.
