“CHICAGO — In a sign of solidarity, the Pittsburgh Steelers stayed in the locker room during the national anthem before Sunday’s game with the Chicago Bears.
Players for the Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans did the same before their game.
An NFL official told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that no fines are being considered for those players who stayed in the locker room during the anthem.
As the anthem began at Soldier Field, several Steelers coaches were on the sideline, including head coach Mike Tomlin, while the players were not present. Offensive coordinator Todd Haley, offensive line coach Mike Munchak and running backs coach James Saxon also were spotted.
Players took the field within a few seconds of the anthem’s end, just after fireworks launched; quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was one of the first players out of the tunnel. Left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, an Army Ranger who served in Afghanistan, was seen on the CBS broadcast at the edge of the tunnel during the anthem, with his hand over his heart.
Roethlisberger made it a point of emphasis after the Steelers’ 23-17 overtime loss to the Bears to say that the team’s decision was a unified one and that he has the “utmost respect” for “our troops and those that serve this country.”
