Miami Dolphins players take a knee before their game at the New York Jets.

NEW YORK - The Miami Dolphins participated in a show of unity during the national anthem on Sunday.

Dolphins players locked arms on the sidelines during the singing of the anthem, and owner Stephen Ross stood between Reshad Jones and Mike Pouncey. 

Kenny Stills was one of several Dolphins players to take a knee.

President Donald Trump on Friday challenged NFL players who protested the anthem.

During a speech in Alabama, the president said that those players should be fired.
