DeAndre Hopkins skipped practice because of Bob McNair's comments

Wild Card Round- Oakland Raiders v Houston Texans

That comment infuriated numerous Texans players, not to mention other players around the league.

Team owner Bob McNair met with Texans players Saturday morning and expressed regret for his "inmates running the prison" comment, according to multiple reports.

Brown said that, after the protest, McNair "didn't have anything to say to me". In fact, players on the team he owns were reportedly very upset about it.

The Texans allegedly wanted to walk out of practice on Friday because of McNair's remark and had to be persuaded to stay.

10 players, including Pro Bowl wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, briefly left the practice facility on Friday, according to sources cited by ESPN. I asked Brown if he thinks it would ever come to that.

Brown said he found McNair's comments "disrespectful" but said, "I can't say I'm surprised, and. I never meant to offend anyone and I was not referring to our players", McNair wrote in a statement released by the Texans. Still, the league made no change to its guidelines last week to require players to stand during the anthem.

"This is how you view us: 'You're an inmate".

Texans defensive back Treston Decoud took to Twitter to voice his frustration, tweeting "I don't believe he is the only owner that feel that way... smh".

Before the excerpted audio, Gottlieb criticized McNair (who has since apologized) for butchering the idiom, which is "inmates running the asylum" (not prison), before addressing Hopkins' reaction. Texans coach Bill O'Brien declined to comment on any connection to McNair, saying only that Hopkins had taken a "personal day". I used a figure of speech that was never meant to be taken literally.

McNair made his comment after Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones argued that owners must find a solution to solve the polarizing anthem issue, which he said is having a negative effect on business, per ESPN. You're an inmate. We can't let you guys out of line.

At one point, Buffalo Bills co-owner Terry Pegula suggested former National Football League player Anquan Boldin serve as an National Football League spokesman for social issues, noting, it couldn't be a "white owner but needs to be someone who's black". We can't let you have your own beliefs.
