Then, the entire team planned a protest against their owner and executed it during the national anthem before their game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
The Texans had indicated there would be some type of protest following comments by owner Bob McNair.

But McNair did not meet with Texans players until Saturday, a day after two offensive players, star receiver DeAndre Hopkins and rookie running back D'Onta Foreman, skipped practice.

According to ESPN, Texans players met on Saturday to discuss how to handle McNair's comments.
One of those was African-American NFL vice president/football operations Troy Vincent, a former player, who told the owners that during his playing career he had been called many names, including the N-word, but "never felt like an inmate".
