An NFL reporter is now taking back a statement he made live on TV Sunday morning that former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is not planning to continue kneeling in protest during the national anthem if he is given a chance to play in the league again.
The confusion started after Jason La Canfora talked about Kaepernick on the network's pregame show, "The NFL Today".

His goal tally is tied for Dennis Bergkamp for the most in Dutch history, while he has the ninth-most caps. Arjen Robben scored or assisted a goal once every 112 minutes for the Netherlands (37 goals, 29 assists).
Oh, and he also tossed out a little tidbit that Kaepernick will stand for the national anthem. During the segment, anchor James Brown turned to the anthem debate: "And kneeling, he said?"
"Standing for Anthem wasn't something that I spoke to Colin about", La Canfora wrote in a series of tweets he said were meant to "clarify" his report. Insiders and supporters of Kaepernick have said his protests are why National Football League teams are steering clear of the veteran quarterback who started for the 49ers and led the team to their Super Bowl appearance in 2013. Kaepernick was not worked out and the Titans reportedly did not have interest in him.
"Colin would have to address any future demonstrations", Mr La Canfora said in one tweet. He also claimed that the quarteback will stop kneeling during the anthem in his bid to fully focus on football.

Kiessling previously stated the order was given without the mother's consent and disclosed her residence to the Mirasolo. I was receiving about $260 a month in food stamps for me and my son and health insurance for him.
Kaepernick himself retweeted posts that La Canfora's report was false, and later, a quote he attributed to Winston Churchill about lies. Among the nuggets he came away with is why Kaepernick has remained muted (the QB even politely declined another interview). I didn't ask him if he would sit or stand.
Kaepernick remains a free agent since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March.
Kaepernick said at the time that he was protesting the treatment of black Americans, particularly by the police.
