[Video] Ray Lewis said he was praying, not protesting, as he knelt for anthem

Many NFL fans were surprised to see ex-Baltimore Ravens star Ray Lewis join his former team on Sunday to kneel with them during the national anthem. Many assumed Lewis, who has criticized Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel during the anthem to protest racial injustice in the United States, dropped down on both knees to show unity in the face of divisive and incendiary comments made by President Trump about protesters in the NFL.
It turns out that wasn’t the case, however. On Tuesday night, Lewis made clear in a passionate exchange on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL” that his decision to join his former team on the field and kneel during the anthem was to “simply honor God in the midst of chaos.”
