NINERS’ KAP KNEELS, S. D. CROWD BOOS, LET’S MOVE ON!

By Annie Ross

Colin Kaepernick didn’t take a seat for the national anthem last night, but he wasn’t standing either.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback chose to kneel while the anthem played, and this time he wasn’t alone.

San Francisco safety Eric Reid, a fourth-year player out of LSU, also took a knee on the sideline in San Diego, joining Kaepernick in a show of support for the quarterback’s protest as the crowd booed ahead of the preseason finale between the 49ers and Chargers, a game won by San Francisco, 31-21.

It was the fourth time in four games Kaepernick did not stand during the anthem, although Thursday’s game was under a larger magnifying glass after comments he made following last Friday’s game that drew the ire of many and sparked a heated national debate. (He was not in uniform for the first two games.)
