DENVER — Denver Broncos running back and Kenosha native, Melvin Gordon, took a knee during the national anthem of Monday night's game against the Tennessee Titans.
WFTS sports reporter Kevin Lewis tweeted a picture reportedly showing Gordon kneeling next to his teammates Monday night.
Gordon was born and raised in Kenosha before playing for the Badgers. Gordon was then drafted by the San Diego / Los Angeles Chargers and later joined the Broncos.
Gordon has been outspoken about his support for protesters in the wake of the police shooting of Jacob Blake. He even came back to his hometown to attend protests to call for change and reform, according to a video from the NFL.
