NFL players Eric Reid and Malcolm Jenkins separated after coin toss over the national anthem

On Monday's episode of "Pat Gray Unleashed," the guys discussed drama on the field between Carolina Panthers defensive back Eric Reid and Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, after Jenkins stood during the national anthem while Reid kneeled on Sunday.

During the coin toss, Reid was visibly agitated with Jenkins and confronted him resulting in the two players being separated.

"Televisions cameras zoomed in just as the scuffle broke out," Pat said. "It looks like it happened right around the coin toss."

What's the backstory?

Reid considers Jenkins a sellout after Jenkins and others agreed that they will no longer kneel during the national anthem provided that the NFL would donate $100 million to social justice causes.

According to Fox News, Reid and Jenkins are on the same side of the controversy surrounding Colin Kaepernick's protest of "The Star-Spangled Banner" that began in 2016.

The two players have since gone their separate ways after Jenkins met with the league, striking a deal creating The Players Coalition,  a group created to help support social justice causes.

Reid's group, The Undefeated, focuses on getting Kaepernick back in the league.

What happened after the game?

Reid told reporters that Jenkins is a "sellout" and a "neo-colonialist."

Jenkins took the high road and offered no comment.
