Marshawn Lynch didn't play Saturday night, but he did make a statement in his return to an National Football League game field.
The 31-year-old Lynch came out of retirement when he was acquired by the Raiders in April after spending five seasons with the Seattle Seahawks.
Raiders coach Jack Del Rio was unaware of Lynch's intention to sit but said he spoke with the veteran rusher after the game.
Last year, when Colin Kaepernick's anthem protest sparked a national controversy, Lynch was out of the NFL and therefore wasn't in position to either sit, stand, or lock arms with teammates, as Lynch's former team did. "I said, 'So you understand how I feel, I very strongly believe in standing for the national anthem, but I'm gonna respect you as a man".
