Khan among 10 on Sports Illustrated cover


JACKSONVILLE – Jaguars Owner Shad Khan will be on Sports Illustrated's cover this week.

Khan, who linked arms with Jaguars players and staff during the National Anthem before a victory over the Baltimore Ravens at Wembley Stadium in London Sunday, is one of 10 sports figures pictured on the cover.

Sports Illustrated posted this week's cover on Twitter Tuesday morning with the headline, "A Nation Divided … Sports United."

Among those on the cover are NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett. NBA players Steph Curry and LeBron James are also on the cover.

Khan, players, coaches and staff linked arms during the anthem in response to President Trump's recent criticism of NFL players for kneeling during the anthem. Khan during the anthem linked arms with tight end Marcedes Lewis and linebacker Telvin Smith.

More than Jaguars players also knelt Sunday while linking arms with teammates and staff. The Ravens during the anthem linked arms in similar fashion with some players also kneeling.
