DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins receiver Kenny Stills says his protests will continue, and that he's committed to activism "forever."

Stills met with reporters on Thursday, after a week that included a Sept. 11 meeting with veterans and a tweet from U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida lauding him for his efforts.

Stills is one of the Dolphins' captains. He says there was a time when the backlash over his decision to kneel, from the likes of President Donald Trump and others, bothered him. He says he no longer lets it affect him.

Stills was one of two NFL players who kneeled for the national anthem in Week 1 last weekend. Dolphins receiver Albert Wilson was the other.
