Chris Long Supported His Teammate Malcolm Jenkins While He Protested During The National Anthem

Before the Eagles preseason game on Thursday defensive lineman Chris Long stood next to, and put his arm around, Malcolm Jenkins as he protested the National Anthem with his fist raised in the air.

Long, who grew up in Charlottesville, becomes the first white player to show support during a National Anthem protest in the NFL.

This is a pretty powerful image.
