Eagles’ Chris Long has Malcolm Jenkins’ back

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins continued his protest of social injustice Thursday by raising a fist over his head during the playing of the national anthem before the team’s preseason home game against the Buffalo Bills.

In a show of support, defensive end Chris Long kept his hand on Jenkins’ back for the entire playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” then gave Jenkins a pat on the shoulder pads and a hug when the song was over.
