Major League Soccer players have joined a growing number of North American professional athletes to force their leagues to postpone play in the aftermath of the Jacob Blake shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Orlando City and Nashville are already underway, but the remaining five games have been postponed. That includes Inter Miami CF vs. Atlanta United FC, FC Dallas vs. Colorado Rapids, Real Salt Lake vs. LAFC, and the San Jose Earthquakes vs. the Portland Timbers. Notably, Miami and Atlanta took the field, joined together in solidarity with officials at midfield and then left the field.
