Malcolm Jenkins Stays In Tunnel, Michael Bennett Sits In Locker Room During Anthem
During the National Anthem last week, Malcolm Jenkins stayed out on the field, but rose his fist in the air, something he had been doing for almost two season now.
On Thursday night, he decided to switch it up. Before the Philadelphia Eagles took on the New England Patriots, the safety decided to stay in the tunnel along with teammate De’Vante Bausby.
Defensive end Michael Bennett remained in the locker room.

About an hour or so before the game, Jenkins hit the field with a t-shirt that was captioned, “You aren’t listening.”
