Redskins players raise hands before game in solidarity with Ferguson protesters

On a night when tempers flared in Ferguson, Missouri, as police arrested 31 people, several members of the Washington Redskins secondary stood in solidarity with the protesters by entering their preseason game Monday with raised hands.

Protesters have adopted the pose as a symbolic, non-violent tribute to Michael Brown, who witnesses say had his hands up when he was shot to death by a police officer earlier this month. "We have voices, even though sometimes we don't like to see it that way, we do have voices," safety Ryan Clark said. "We got the opportunity to do something."
