Sight of Eagles hugging inspires Bills lineman to raise fist

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) The sight of defensive end Chris Long putting his arm around Eagles teammate Malcolm Jenkins during the national anthem inspired Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Cameron Jefferson to make his own statement.

Jefferson raised his fist in what he called a silent, peaceful gesture protesting racial inequality before the Bills' preseason game at Philadelphia on Thursday night.

"It gave me some courage," Jefferson said Sunday, referring to seeing Long support Jenkins, who stood with a raised fist. "Just seeing that togetherness on their team between different races, different people, I felt like that's all I wanted. I wanted togetherness to build awareness for that."
