Sunday, October 4: Breast Cancer Awareness Via Football Uniforms
Posted Oct 4th 2009 by Matt Terl
The Redskins will be wearing the traditional white jerseys and burgundy pants for today's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, along with the decidedly non-traditional pink gloves, pink wristbands, and -- in some cases -- pink cleats, as part of the NFL's "A Crucial Catch" breast cancer awareness campaign.
Here's the pink captain's patch, affixed to Chris Samuels's jersey.
The gloves, towels, and wristbands.
As I mentioned via Twitter on Friday, Chris Cooley and Antwaan Randle El were breaking in their pink cleats in practice. But Clinton Portis didn't practice, so one of the equipment room interns has been walking around in Portis's cleats all morning, trying to get them good and broken in. I don't know if the gametime decision on Portis has been made yet or not, but if he can go, his cleats'll be ready.
