Texans coach O’Brien: ‘I’ll take a knee’

Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien said he’ll join any players who decide to kneel during the national anthem in the upcoming season.”Yeah, I’ll take a knee — I’m all for it,” O’Brien told the Houston Chronicle. “The players have a right to protest, a right to be heard and a right to be who they are. They’re not taking a knee because they’re against our flag. They’re taking a knee because they haven’t been treated equally in this country for over 400 years.”The Texans organization is among many throughout the NFL that have vowed to fight racism in the wake of the death of George Floyd while in the custody of Minneapolis police on May 25. The team’s ownership, the McNair family, has started a video series called “Conversations for Change” that is designed to address racism and social injustice.O’Brien canceled team activities on Tuesday so that staff and players could attend funeral services for Floyd in his native Houston. The coach attended, as did a group that included chairman Cal McNair and defensive end J.J. Watt.
