SANTA CLARA, Calif. Montravius Adams Jersey . -- Colin Kaepernick has brought some of his San Francisco teammates closer with his national anthem protests against social injustice.Since this stuff started, Ive had conversations with him on a much deeper level than I ever have, 49ers safety Eric Reid said Friday. Hes told me hes had that same feeling with a number of guys.Reid joined Kaepernicks protest in the preseason finale Sept. 1 in San Diego, with both players taking a knee during the anthem. Previously, the struggling quarterback sat on the bench when the anthem played, protesting social injustices, racial inequalities and police brutality.Theres been a lot of open conversations, a lot more conversations going on in general, Kaepernick said. And I think ultimately this team and this locker room have gotten a lot closer because of the gaining of understanding of individuals. The decision to kneel was the result of collaboration with former Green Beret and Seahawks long snapper Nate Boyer after Kaepernick received public criticism.Youre not going to get a pleasant response, Kaepernick said. Most people dont want change. Theyre set in their ways. In order to change, you have to be able to agitate people at times. I think thats something thats very necessary for us to improve as a country.San Francisco coach Chip Kelly has maintained Kaepernicks protest has not been a distraction to his team. He named Kaepernick the backup quarterback to Blaine Gabbert ahead of the season opener against the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night.I think our team did a great job with it, Kelly said. We recognize and respect Kaps decision and his constitutional rights to do what hes doing and it sounds like its been a positive change. Theres been a lot of positive things that have come out of it.After the San Diego game, Kaepernick announced he would donate $1 million of his salary to undisclosed organizations supporting his cause. Team CEO Jed York Thursday announced the 49ers Foundation will match Kaepernicks donation to local charities in the Bay Area.That was huge, Reid said. I mean, any time you do something, a protest, you know theres going to be backlash. You know you cant satisfy anybody. But for our organization to step up, it feels like were supported by the NFL. Thats huge. It gives substance to what were doing.Game notes CB Chris Davis (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday. DT Arik Armstead (shoulder), LB Nick Bellore (knee), DT Quinton Dial (knee) and DT Glenn Dorsey (knee) were listed as limited. CB Keith Reaser (ankle) returned to practice and was limited after missing practice Thursday. Josh Jones Packers Jersey . -- Three close looks at the bucket, three misses. Kevin King Youth Jersey .

Jamaal Williams Youth Jersey. Brazil is trying to win its first gold medal in soccer and it arrived for Sundays match under pressure after a disappointing 0-0 draw in the opener against South Africa.The crowd of more than 60,000 started supporting Brazil but it grew anxious as the team struggled against Iraq, jeering the players at halftime and more and more toward the end of the match.Gabriel Jesus, who last week secured a multimillion-dollar transfer to Manchester City, missed a few decent chances early and was loudly booed when he was substituted in the second half.Brazil also had a goal by Gabigol disallowed in the 28th because of offside, and Augusto hit the crossbar with a shot just before halftime.---Tales Azzoni on Twitter: http://twitter.com/tazzoni.
