According to USA Today's Texans Wire on Sunday morning, players from the Houston Texans plan some sort of group protest in Seattle on Sunday prior to the Texans-Seahawks game on the heels of Texans owner Bob McNair's "inmates running the prison" comment last week.
Many NFL players have expressed their disgust at McNair's misuse of the colloquialism "inmates running the asylum."
Despite an apology and an expression of regret from McNair, posted and tweeted by the Texans on Friday, players from the team are still upset with the owner. According to several NFL insiders, the pre-game protest may include kneeling en-masse during the national anthem, a raising of their fists during the anthem, staying in the locker room during the anthem, or peeling the Texans logo off of their helmets.

It is not known if the entire team will participate in the protest. There has been no word as to whether or not any players from the Seahawks will participate in solidarity with the Texans players, but there are two outspoken social activists on the Seahawks roster: Michael Bennett and Richard Sherman.
