According to Yahoo Sports, the song will be played prior to "The Star-Spangled Banner".

Wyche said that the decision to wear decals or patches would be left up to individual players, though teams could also decide as a whole.

USA Today and ESPN first reported that the National Football League is in the process of finalizing plans to play the song considered a "Black Anthem".

For those who don't know, the song in question is called "Lift Ev'ry Voice And Sing" and has been highly regarded as the Black National Anthem, for quite some time now. The NFL also may produce educational programs about victims.

Cruz wondered in a tweet whether there were national anthems for other races.

Roger Goodell condemned racism and affirmed that Black lives matter, pledging his allegiance to the players in the battle for equal justice under the law.

Local Red Bluff Daily News said that at least five ambulances arrived at the scene, as well as police officers and firefighters. Vince Krick told Record Searchlight that the shooting started just as a group of workers was scheduled to start their shift.

"It has been a hard time for our country", Goodell said in the video, posted to Instagram. "First, my condolences to the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and all the families who have endured police brutality". The NFL Players Association also is involved in the deliberations.

"In addition to the financial commitment, we will continue to leverage the NFL Network and all of our media properties to place an increased emphasis on raising awareness and promoting education of social justice issues to our fans and help foster unity".

How many national anthems do we have??

We want laws to be changed. "We are listening, I am listening, and I will be reaching out to players who have raised their voices and others on how we can improve and go forward for a better and more united National Football League family".

The NFL season is tentatively planned for September 10, but concerns around the coronavirus could alter the season's start. Both outlets further reported that the names of victims of police brutality will be displayed on players' helmets and jerseys.
