JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Receivers for the Jacksonville Jaguars and defensive end Ryan Davis wore “I Can’t Breathe” T-shirts during warmups before their Thursday night game against the Tennessee Titans.

This is the final home game of the year for the Jaguars, and the final Thursday night game in the NFL season.

Both teams are 2-12.

The black T-shirts with white print were worn over their long-sleeved warm-up gear on a cool night in Jacksonville.

The slogan refers to Eric Garner, who died after a New York police officer placed him in a chokehold during an arrest for selling loose cigarettes. A grand jury decided not to indict the officer. A video of the arrest showed Garner gasping, “I can’t breathe.”



Other NFL players and athletes have worn the shirts in recent weeks.
