Orchard Park, NY (WBEN) As the Buffalo Bills prepare to take on the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, the conversation over taking a knee during the anthem continues. Bills players say there's no decision yet on whether there will be another protest then.

"We haven't had that conversation," says quarterback Tyrod Taylor. "We're not sure how it will play out this week across the league." Taylor says the conversation needs to continue and support to players will continue. "Last week was special because of what Pres. Trump said about us, but we cant take the focus away from the game on Sunday," notes Taylor.

"I don't want to make it we're addressing this every practice, every week, taking away from our focus," says LeSean McCoy. Referring to his stretching during the anthem, "I was angry, hurt. Just someone like the president, being our leader, from millions of people, they look at the things he said about us, it just got to me," says McCoy.

McCoy says he too has not thought about whether there will be a protest again this week.
