Eagles players Malcolm Jenkins and Chris Long released statements earlier Wednesday http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/jaire-alexander-jersey , strongly criticizing the NFL’s new national anthem policy.

Jenkins said owners thwarted “the players鈥?constitutional rights to express themselves and use our platform to draw attention to social injustices like racial inequality in our country.”

Long accused owners of reacting to a “fear of a diminished bottom line,” and a “fear of a president turning his base against a corporation.” He called the new policy a fail, saying, “I’m someone who’s always looked at the anthem as a declaration of ideals http://www.broncosauthorizedshops.com/authentic-josey-jewell-jersey , including the right of peaceful protest. Our league continues to fall short on this issue.”

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said in a statement he was proud of his players for “working to influence positive change.” But he didn’t go as far as 49ers owner Jed York, who abstained in the vote, or Jets CEO Christopher Johnson, who declared that his team would not punish players for kneeling.

鈥淚 have always believed it is the responsibility of sports teams to be very proactive in our communities Authentic Brian O'Neill Jersey ,” Lurie said. “In this great country of ours, there are so many people who are hurting and marginalized, which is why I am proud of our players for continuously working to influence positive change. Their words and actions have demonstrated not only that they have a great deal of respect for our country, but also that they are committed to finding productive ways to fight social injustice Richard Panik Jersey , poverty and other societal issues that are important to all of us. We must continue to work together in creative and dynamic ways to make our communities stronger and better with equal opportunities for all.鈥?/p> Cavaliers starting point guard George Hill will miss Game 5 against Indiana with lingering back spasms.

Hill also sat out Game 4, but the Cavs were able to hold on to a second-half lead and beat the Pacers to even the series. Hill has been bothered by a bad back since he was drilled from behind by Indiana’s Trevor Booker in the series opener.

Jose Calderon will start in place of Hill, who came to the Cavs in February via trade from Sacramento. The 31-year-old Hill is averaging 8.7 points and 1.7 assists in the postseason.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue did not provide any details on Hill’s injury or his status going forward in the series. Hill received four injections in an attempt to play in Game 4.

Calderon has been in and out of Cleveland’s lineup all season. He’s averaging 3.3 points and 14 minutes in the series.
