The Cowboys have gone from potential Super Bowl contenders to being in a battle to reach the playoffs after losing the last three straight games.
The Dallas Cowboys star is yet to sign an extension and his participation in Week 1 remains in doubt.
"That is the kind of stuff that throughout history African-Americans have complained about," Smith said.
The video game producer censored Kaepernick's name in one of the songs it licensed for the game's soundtrack.
Jones said last week that Cowboys players will not be allowed to remain in the locker room during the anthem.
The three-time NBA champion accused the president of using sports to stir up controversy.
The stance clashes with the anthem policy the league adopted in March.
Jones had strongly lobbied against extending Roger Goodell's contract.
Jones has been angry with Roger Goodell.
Goodell has been NFL Commissioner since 2006.
The Cowboys have the NFC's 10th-best record.
This is no longer unthinkable.
'Big Ben' doesn't sound like he wants to play.
"We need to move past this controversy, and we want to do that together with our players," the NFL Commissioner wrote.
Trump told Jerry Jones he'd found a rule that dictates players must stand for the national anthem, but really it had only just been added.
Jones donated to Trump's inauguration fund.
The president had previously urged team owners to fire players who protested the national anthem, but it backfired.
Jones had previously voiced his belief in "respecting the flag."
Jones isn't a fan of the protests.
