Dolphins receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson and defensive end Robert Quinn protested during the national anthem before Thursday's exhibition game against the Buccaneers.

The NFL's regular season is a month away, but players are already defying the league's new policy banning peaceful protests during the national anthem.

The Dolphins players weren't the only ones to renew their protests as the preseason began Thursday night.

The NFL's preseason kicked off last week with the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens playing in the annual Hall of Fame Game.

Stills and Wilson kneeled behind teammates who were standing along the sideline.

There were no other actions by either Seattle or Indianapolis players during the performance of anthem.

The three players - Quinton Jefferson, Branden Jackson and Duane Brown - quickly ran out to join the team after the anthem was complete.

The NFL modified its national anthem protocol in May, prohibiting any sort of demonstrations for the 2018 season, but allowing players to remain in the locker room during the anthem if they chose to.
