NFL reportedly done with 'color rush' alternate uniforms for Thursday night

The NFL has a new network for Thursday night games and apparently a new uniform policy too.

Barrett Sport Media reported on Tuesday that Fox Sports executive vice president Bill Wanger said that the alternate color rush uniforms that have been associated with Thursday NFL games are going away.

NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reports that color rush uniforms may not be dead yet, though and could show up places other than “Thursday Night Football.”

Fox recently outbid CBS and NBC for the rights to “Thursday Night Football,” and will start broadcasting Thursday games this fall.

Fans have had a love/hate relationship (well, mostly hate) with the color-rush uniforms which were often a source of mockery from those who fall on Wanger’s “gimmick” side of the fence.

Last season, Washington Redskins players declined to wear all-yellow uniforms slated for their Thursday matchup with the Dallas Cowboys.

Take a look at last year's color rush uniforms:

In 2015, the Jets and Bills donned color rush uniforms that left those suffering from red-green color blindness confused as to whom they were watching.

So while players and fans who loathe the brightly hued uniforms seemingly can’t put a nail in the color-rush coffin just yet, they can take solace that they have a powerful ally in Wanger.
