Over the past two days there have been reports that players on the Texans will protest McNair's "inmate" comment by taking a knee.
Almost the entire Houston team took a knee during the national anthem on Sunday in Seattle, a direct shot at Bob McNair after a tumultuous few days that have seen owner and players turned against each other.
Earlier this week, an explosive ESPN.com story broke the news that McNair had said, "We can't have the inmates running the prison", which was at the time assumed to be a reference to NFL players' protests of police brutality and racism during the national anthem.
McNair apologized on Friday, and Pro Football Talk reported that he met with the team on Saturday, but players were not satisfied. But they ultimately made a decision to sit or kneel during the anthem.
"Our focus going forward, personally and as an organization, will be towards making meaningful progress regarding the social issues that mean so much to our players and our community".
Despite rumors that the players would remove the Texans decals from their helmets, they ended up leaving them on.
The NFL continued to see sporadic protests during the national anthem on Sunday, a month after President Trump ignited a firestorm by suggesting players who kneel during the anthem should be fired.

The controversy is part of a larger polemic that extends to last season, when Colin Kaepernick knelt during the national anthem to raise awareness about racial inequality. I think it angered a lot of players, including myself.
