The New Orleans Saints are using their helmets to protest the shooting of an unarmed black man by police in Wisconsin.

During practice on Thursday, players wrote the name of Jacob Blake on the front of their helmets to offer support to the man who was shot seven-times in the back earlier this month.

The incident has sparked a wave of protests across professional sports with players from the NBA, MLB, WNBA, and MLS postponing games.

Head coach Sean Payton said there was no talk of canceling practice and the Saints' players have his 100% support.
