Colin Kaepernick issued his support Sunday for the two players who chose to kneel during the national anthem for Week 1. 

The quarterback tweeted Miami Dolphins receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson will “move the world forward” after the two protested racial justice before Sunday’s kick-off against the Tennessee Titans. 

Kaepernick has remained out of the NFL since kneeling during the 2016 season, though recently found his way back in the headlines following Nike’s decision to use him as the face of their “Just Do It” campaign. 

ESPN reported Sunday that the NFL is expected to not unveil a new national anthem policy this season after the league scrapped a plan to ban protests during the anthem. 

Kaepernick has filed a collusion grievance against the NFL over his unemployment, suggesting the league’s owners conspired to keep him out of a job because of his stance against racial inequality.
