On Tuesday, Packers players issued a statement saying team personnel, including all players, would stand with "arms intertwined" during the anthem and that fans were invited to do the same.
"We believe that in diversity there can be UNI-versity," the players wrote. "Intertwined, we represent the many people who helped build this country, and we are joining together to show that we are ready to continue to build.
"Let’s work together to build a society that is more fair and just."
On Thursday night, Wood relayed a photo of the section in front of the press box, which did not show a heavy segment of fans linking arms:

Prior to the Packers' 27-24 overtime win over the Cincinnati Bengals at Lambeau Field in Week 3, almost all Packers players linked arms in a display of unity.
The exceptions were Martellus Bennett, Kevin King and Lance Kendricks, all of whom sat, according to the New York Times' Benjamin Hoffman and Lance Booth.
