Michael Bennett Celebrated A Sack Against 49ers With A Raised Fist (VIDEO)
On Sunday, Michael Bennett sacked 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer in the first quarter. Instead of doing his regular celebration, he decided to switch it up and raised his fist in celebration.
This is the first sack celebration we’ve seen that has mimicked an act of protests. This gesture from Bennett is likely tied to what he went through in Las Vegas, when he felt as if he was racially profiled by police who pointed a gun to his head.

Bennett has been sitting for the national anthem since the preseason started in August.
Questions are sure to arise from reporters following this game.
