Panthers' Reid confronts Eagles' Jenkins over protests, coalition

Eric Reid

Tensions were running high for newly-signed Panthers safety Eric Reid and Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins at the start of their Week 7 matchup Sunday.

Carolina's Eric Reid had to be restrained by team mates after confronting Malcolm Jenkins of the Philadelphia Eagles prior to their National Football League game on Sunday and later accused him of selling out the players' movement protesting social injustice.

Reid ran onto the field during the coin toss and got into a heated exchanged with Jenkins, who was on the field for the toss, before former Eagles wide receiver Torrey Smith and several other Panthers restrained Reid. Eagles tight end Zach Ertz went after Reid and both players were called for personal fouls.

Reid, while on defense, continued to look toward the Philadelphia sideline where Jenkins was standing on the first few series.

There's history between Reid and Jenkins: Jenkins is the co-founder of the Players' Coalition, a social justice partnership formed in the wake of Colin Kaepernick's protests against social inequality in America.

After the NFL agreed to donate almost $90 million to causes the coalition considered important, Jenkins stopped raising a fist of protest during the national anthem.

"We believe a lot of players should have stepped up for Colin", Reid, 26, said after the game. "I believe Malcolm capitalized on the situation. It was cowardly. He sold us out".

"You couldn't pay me to say anything negative about them", Jenkins said.

Kaepernick also tweeted his support for Reid.

Carolina ended up coming away with the victory, 21-17.
