His former San Francisco 49ers teammate Eric Reid, who was the first to join him kneeling on the sideline, had originally agreed not to continue the protest.

Earlier on Sunday, CBS' Jason La Canfora said on CBS' NFL pregame show that Kaepernick would stand for the national anthem.

While the work Kaepernick does in the community is still very important to him, La Canfora said any talk about football not being important to the quarterback is nonsense. He told the media he was protesting against the treatment of blacks in the United States. "He understands that there's controversy and things that come with him but as a football player, he's hoping to be judged in that manner".

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say: 'Get that son of a b-- off the field right now, out, '" the Trump said.

While the NFL's anthem protests have picked up steam in recent weeks, Colin Kaepernick has remained quiet and out of public sight.

This is a breaking story.

Jason La Canfora of CBS says that he spent a "few hours" with Kaepernick on Saturday night.

However, after reports exploded quoting the CBS account, La Canfora took to Twitter to reveal that he had not spoken to Kaepernick about the question.

"He's just looking for an opportunity", said La Canfora. He's gonna donate all his jersey sales. When, by summer, the former 49er was still jobless, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell explained it had nothing to do with his refusal to stand for the national anthem.

While it remains to be seen what Kaepernick would do during the national anthem if given the opportunity, it seems we won't know until he is officially on an NFL roster.

"It did spark conversation, which I think is a part of what Colin Kaepernick meant to do", Goodell said in June.
