A National Anthem singer got down on one knee after the performance at Sunday’s Detroit Lions game. Video of the silent protest by Rico LaVelle was posted by SBNation.com, and posted to Twitter.

Lions players, as well as those of opposing team Atlanta Falcons, can be seen kneeling and linking arms during the anthem.

The silent protest was among others across the NFL on Sunday in answer to President Donald Trump’s harsh rebuke of players who don’t stand during the anthem.

Most of the Pittsburgh Steelers remained in the locker room as the anthem was played at their game, and the Jacksonville Jaguars were joined by owner, Shad Khan, on the field as they knelt and linked arms before their game, The Hill reported.
