Almost the entire Houston team took a knee during the national anthem on Sunday in Seattle, a direct shot at Bob McNair after a tumultuous few days that have seen owner and players turned against each other. On Saturday, he attempted to further clarify his comments by saying he was referring to the relationship between the league office and team owners and "how they have been making significant decisions affecting our league without adequate input from ownership".
Then, the entire team planned a protest against their owner and executed it during the national anthem before their game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
Players also remained unconvinced by the apology, according to the AP, and they told numerous media outlets that they had met to discuss how to react moving forward.
He says he wasn't referring to the players in what he calls a "very regretful comment". Left tackle Duane Brown told reporters on Friday that players considered a mass walkout but ultimately chose to practice and fly to Seattle.
