The anthem protests continued on Monday night at the Rams-49ers game in Santa Clara. Colin Kaepernick took a knee again, just as he said he would. He was once again joined by teammate Eric Reid.

On the other side of the field, a couple of Rams made even stronger statements. Wide receiver Kenny Britt and defensive end Robert Quinn raised their firsts, just like the Chiefs’ Marcus Peters did on Sunday and the Patriots’ Martellus Bennett and Devin McCourtney did earlier on Monday.

Take a look:

This is not the first time members of the Rams have used their platform to take a stand on social issues. In 2014, when the team was still in St. Louis, a number of players took the field with their hands in the air as a nod to the protests down the road in Ferguson, Missouri. On Saturday, Eric Reid posted a lengthy explanation of his decision to kneel on Twitter.

It doesn’t look like the national anthem protests are going anywhere any time soon.
