Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott followed the lead of his quarterback and team owner. Both Dak Prescott and Jerry Jones have spoken out against protesting during the National Anthem.
Zeke is the latest to do so. He told reporters that the Cowboys were America’s team and they stand for the anthem.
"We're the Dallas football Cowboys. America's Team. We stand for the national anthem."

Expect some protesting of the Cowboys next season in Dallas. The issue is no longer about racial injustice, it’s been turned into a debate about patriotism.
