The Texans have been very outspoken about social issues recently, and now we're learning that Bill O'Brien told the Houston Chronicle that he will take a knee with his players and join them in protest of racial injustice.

"This is the right thing to do, and I think our players recognize that. We want to support our players and our community. We're all in this boat together."

O'Brien is not the only member of the Texans speaking about racial injustice. Team chairman Cal McNair recently sat down with former Texans 1st round pick, Travis Johnson, and had a discussion about racism in America. The conversation can be viewed on the Texans website and YouTube channel.
