WASHINGTON — Several months back, a Twitter account by the name of @NFL_Leaks reported, claiming insider knowledge, that the Redskins, when they play the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day, would be wearing all-black color rush uniforms.
Lending credence to this report, just several weeks earlier Lions Team President Rod Wood had gone on record saying “all teams that play on Thursday this year will wear a Color Rush uniform.”
That would place the Redskins in line to wear their color rush uniforms on Thanksgiving, their only Thursday game in 2016. After some changes, NFL Leaks reports, the Redskins will now be wearing gold color rush uniforms, rather than black.
The NFL will officially unveil all of its teams’ color rush jerseys Tuesday morning, according to NFL Leaks.
Perhaps we’ll know more by Tuesday. Check back soon.
Update (11:44 p.m.): It appears the Redskins announced in April “there will be no color rush uniforms for the Redskins for 2016,” although it’s possible they could have changed their stance between then and now. We shall see.
Update (Tuesday): Redskins color rush uniforms released, immediately criticized.
