TENNESSEE – Barely an hour before game time, the Seattle Seahawks still hadn’t decided how they were going to protest during the national anthem before the game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Q13 FOX’s Ian Furness said it was “a fluid situation,” with various players who wanted to stand, sit, or kneel during the anthem, and others who wanted to stay in the locker room.

Furness said the team held a meeting Saturday night, but no consensus was reached.

The team issued a statement Saturday defending the players’ right to exercise their free speech.

More than 100 players in Sunday’s early round of games took a knee during the national anthem.
