The Miami Dolphins' 2018 season policy includes suspensions of up to four games and fines for players who protest on the field during the national anthem, reports the Associated Press.

Why it matters: The Dolphins were thought to be the first team to announce they'd be including suspensions in their national anthem violation policy. The NFL announced in May that they'd be requiring players to stand for the national anthem when on the field. The next day, the Dolphins announced via Twitter that they had not yet made a decision on their national anthem policy.

Editors note: This story has been updated to reflect the Dolphin's Friday announcement.
