A report on Sunday that claimed former San Francisco 49er's quarterback Colin Kaepernick told CBS sportswriter Jason La Canfora he would stand for the anthem if he could again play football was incorrect, Mediaite reported.

In a series of tweets, La Canfora said he had not spoken to Kaepernick about the issue, but was relaying statements he heard earlier this year.

"Standing for Anthem wasn't something that I spoke to Colin about sat. I relayed what had been reported about him standing in the future... " La Canfora posted. "Colin would have to address any future demonstrations. I didn't ask him if he would sit or stand. Our chat primarily about his will to play."

Kaepernick's official Twitter account also refuted the claim, linking to an Instagram post that read, "Everybody simmer down. We live in a strange world. 1) Colin never spoke to CBS, 2) This reporter Jason Lancafora didn’t do an interview with Colin he randomly bumped into him in a hotel lobby, 3) Jason Lancafora said in these tweets he didn’t even have a convo with Kaep about kneeling so how in the hell is everybody running with a story about Kaep not kneeling and Kaep never said that??? FAKE NEWS. “Believe only half of what you see and nothing that you hear especially if it’s on the internet. -Uncle Charla Allan Poe " https://www.instagram.com/p/BZ_xiX6lNsS/
