*Tennessee Titans star Derrick Henry made a powerful statement against racial injustice just by stepping off the plane in Denver.

On Sunday, the star running back arrived in Colorado to play the Broncos in a suit that featured the names of victims whose lives were lost to police brutality and racial injustice. The suit was black with white text and included names such as Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Tamir Rice and Emmett Till.

Henry paired the statement suit with a white undershirt and black face mask to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Later that evening, the Titans shared several photos of Henry’s outfit on their Twitter page, writing, “It takes all of us.”

On Monday, the Titans beat the Denver Broncos 16-14. During the game, several players from both the Titans and the Broncos took a knee during the singing of the national anthem, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette.
