Earlier on Monday, rookie linebacker Myke Tavarres informed ESPN of his plan to sit during the national anthem before the Eagles game this week in an act of protest. According to Tavarres' agent Corey Williams, however, the undrafted rookie free agent won't be sitting after all.

The Eagles released a statement from head coach Doug Pederson with respect to today's news.
