Broncos fans delivered a significant number of cheers mixed with a noticeable, but quieter entry of boos when linebacker Brandon Marshall was introduced before Sunday’s game against Indianapolis.
Moments later, Marshall took a knee during the national anthem for the second game in a row in in protest of social injustice and police brutality in the country. No other Broncos or Colts player appeared to participate in the protest.
Marshall has spoken at length about his passion and desire for change in these matters since first kneeling September 8th before the Broncos’ season opener against Carolina.
He has delivered action behind his words since first beginning his protest. Marshall pledged a $300 donation for every tackle he makes to organizations committed to helping better causes that are important to him.
