(FOX NEWS) – The Arizona Cardinals, Denver Broncos, Chicago Bears, New York Jets, Indianapolis Colts and Green Bay Packers were among the teams who chose not to practice last week in response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, in Wisconsin.
In a statement posted on Twitter the Colts said the team used the day “to discuss and work toward making a lasting social impact and inspiring change in our communities.”
The shooting of Blake, which reportedly left him partially paralyzed, was captured on cellphone video and ignited new protests in the U.S. three months after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody sparked a nationwide reckoning over racial injustice.
According to ESPN, citing sources, the NFL “is planning extensive content around social injustice for Week 1 of the regular season.”
