Colts, Jets Among Teams to Cancel Practice After Jacob Blake Shooting

Six NBA teams opted to sit out their first-round playoff games on Wednesday after the shooting of Jacob Blake, and the NFL appears to be following suit.

The Colts and Jets are among the teams to cancel practice on Thursday after Blake, 29, was shot seven times by police in Kenosha, Wis. on Sunday. Protests have engulfed Kenosha following the shooting of Blake, and on Tuesday, a gunman killed two individuals. As frustration mounts regarding the state of racial injustice and police brutality, athletes are taking a stand across the sports spectrum.
