Rico Lavelle, the national anthem singer at the Detroit Lions home game against the Atlanta Falcons, finished his version of the anthem by taking a knee and raising a fist.

Protests surfaced during the national anthem across all of the NFL’s early Sunday games, largely in response to President Trump’s sharp criticism of the league and its players. Across the league, players and owners knelt or locked arms in solidarity. 

In Detroit, however, prior to Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, the anthem singer took a statement one step further.

On the sideline, Lions team owner Martha Ford locked arms with head coach Jim Caldwell, while Falcons owner Arthur Blank locked arms with Devonta Freeman and Julio Jones.
