The NFL has implemented a new policy on how players & staff are to conduct themselves during the national anthem for the 2018 season. Moving forward, players on the field who choose to kneel during the national anthem could, along with the team franchise, be fined. The new policy states that players who do not wish to stand during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner, may remain in the locker room or off-field during the song.
