Some players for the Dallas Cowboys plan to protest the national anthem ahead of their Monday game against the Arizona Cardinals, according to a report by The Star-Telegram.

Citing multiple sources, the report said it was unclear if the whole team or merely a few individuals would participate.

However, all players interviewed seemed in agreement that President Donald Trump's recent statements were the catalyst.

“It’s not going to be business as usual," one said. "He crossed a line. Something will be done.”

Hundreds of players, coaches and even owners from nearly every team in the NFL participated in some demonstration of protest Sunday after Trump rebuked players for protesting against social injustice during the national anthem.
