Majority of Texans players kneel after owner Bob McNair's 'inmates' remark

But the Texans' demonstration though was most notable, given the intense negative reaction from players in Houston and around the league on Friday after McNair's "inmates" comment was reported in an ESPN story that detailed what happened during league meetings in New York City last week.

A day after his "inmates running the prison" comment in reference to ongoing player protests during the national anthem became public, Houston Texans owner Bob McNair met with team players on Saturday and issued a second statement. "To use an analogy of inmates in a prison, I would say they're disrespectful". "I wanted to answer their questions".

They're well on their way to doing it again against the Texans. I would never characterize our players or our league that way and I apologize to anyone who was offended by it. "Our focus going forward, personally and as an organization, will be towards making meaningful progress regarding the social issues that mean so much to our players and our community".
