The Steelers, sans U.S. Army Ranger veteran Alejandro Villanueva, remained in their locker room during the playing of the national anthem for their early game in Chicago. Now it appears, two teams on the NFL’s afternoon schedule plan to do the same thing.

According to the Monday Morning Quarterback’s Albert Breer:

While an enforceable NFL rule exists, which requires NFL players to remain on the sidelines for the playing of the national anthem. Given Commissioner Goodell’s harsh words for President Trump, and the outpouring of support for the players coming from ownership, it’s highly unlikely that the NFL would enforce the rule.
