Before the Cowboys season opener against the Los Angeles Rams, defensive lineman Dontari Poe kneeled during the anthem.
This was reportedly the first time in Cowboys history a player kneeled during the anthem.
The Cowboys went on to lose the game 20-17.

Cowboys NT Dontari Poe was team’s only player to kneel during national anthem. He is the first Cowboys player to ever do so. Reserve NT Antwaun Woods stood behind him, placing hand on Poe’s left shoulder. The two slapped hands and hugged when song concluded. pic.twitter.com/uh0yXBic9a
