The Houston Texans’ new wide receiver, Kenny Stills, took a knee during the national anthem before his first game playing for the team on Monday.

In footage captured of the moment, Stills could be seen kneeling while “The Star Spangled Banner” played ahead of the team’s matchup against the New Orleans Saints on Monday night. The move comes roughly a week after the athlete was traded to the team from the Miami Dolphins.

The article goes on to state the following:

While taking to reporters about the moment after the game, Texans head coach Bill O’Brien said “Kenny exercised his right, his prerogative, I’m not going to really get into that.”

“I’ve talked to Kenny, Kenny’s a good guy, very smart guy, very articulate guy and he’s really good football player … so, glad to have him here,” he continued.
