NFL Player Arian Foster Wears T-Shirt to Support Mike Brown

Houston running back Arian Foster decided to make a statement before Thursday night’s matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. During pre-game warm-ups, Foster wore a T-shirt that read "Stand Strong St. Louis" on the front and "RIP Mike Brown" on the back. 

It was one of the few on-field statements made by NFL players in the aftermath of Brown’s killing and protests in Ferguson. During the NFL’s pre-season, members of Washington, D.C.’s NFL team made the "hands up" gesture that’s become synonymous with protests in the St. Louis suburb.
