(CNN) - The NFL's warmup games are in full swing -- and the national anthem protests are back.
Several players on Thursday took a knee, raised a fist or did not take to the field while the anthem was played before a dozen games as the league's first full week of preseason contests kicked off.
he action comes weeks after the league suspended what was supposed to be a new policy barring such demonstrations.
The anthem protests -- meant to draw attention to racial injustice -- have happened with varying participation since 2016, pulling the NFL into a public debate that has seen President Donald Trump call on team owners to stem them.
In Philadelphia, Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett walked out of the tunnel Thursday during the anthem and headed to the team bench ahead of a game against the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers, the Philadelphia Daily News reported.
Eagles captain Malcolm Jenkins and cornerback De'Vante Bausby raised their fists during the song.

Pulling the plug: Local pub owner passes on NFL games this year
https://www.click2houston.com/news/loca ... day-ticketHenry Hudson's Pub has decided it will not purchase DIRECTV NFL Sunday Ticket to show football to patrons.
On it's Facebook page, the pub's owner Jim Adair notified its customers the decision was based on the division of the country over the issue of the National Anthem during games.
On the establishment's page Adair wrote:
"We fully support anyone's right to raise awareness for their issues and causes and believe that as sports celebrities they already have a large platform to do so. Far more than any other average American citizen. There is a time and place and the beginning of an entertainment show is not. During the National Anthem is not it. These are my beliefs."
He further writes:
"I do not make this decision lightly, I simply refuse to support very well paid athletes, kneeling during the National Anthem and the media that continues to make that its focus."
Muslim freedom for all.
