Cowboys Players Won\'t Test Jerry Jones\' Anthem Policy, Report Says

Don't expect to see any Cowboys players kneeling during the national anthem anymore.

Multiple players have said they will not kneel going forward as to not test Jerry Jones' new anthem policy, The Intercept reported.

Spoke to multiple players on the Cowboys. None of them are going to test Jerry Jones. Every member of the team will be standing as he asked.

Jones previously said that anyone who doesn't stand for the national anthem will be benched and that "it's in the best interests of the Dallas Cowboys, the NFL and the players" to respect the American flag.

In a players and coaches meeting Wednesday, the Cowboys decided the actions they took in Week 3 were appropriate. Players kneeled before the anthem with arms linked then stood while "The Star-Spangled Banner" was played.

In the two games since, the players have stood on the sideline with no one kneeling.

The Cowboys have a bye this week but will return to action Oct. 22 against the 49ers.
