LOOK: Lions ditch original Color Rush uniforms, will wear new ones vs. Bears
The Lions will be wearing their Color Rush uniforms for the first time on Thursday
When the Color Rush uniforms were, the Lions were given an all-black uniform by Nike.
However, the Lions never wore the all-black look last season because they weren't scheduled to play in a Thursday Color Rush game. Although the Lions play on Thursday every year, that comes on Thanksgiving when teams aren't required to wear their Color Rush uniforms.
Since the Lions wanted to wear their Color Rush uniforms this year, they decided to do it for Saturday's game against the Bears. The big twist here is that the Lions won't be wearing all-black against Chicago, but instead a brand new uniform that was unveiled in April.
The team hadoverhaul for the 2017 season, and since they were already redesigning things, they decided to go a completely different route with their Color Rush uniform.
Instead of going all-black, the Lions decided to go with steel grey.
Here's a peek at what they'll be wearing against the Bears.
On one hand, that's not exactly putting the color in Color Rush. On the other hand though, I kind of like them.
As you can see below, the steel grey is slightly darker than the silver that the Lions usually wear.
Here's a few more pictures of the Lions' new look that will be debuted on Saturday.
Although the Lions will be breaking out their Color Rush uniform for this week's game, the Bears won't be doing the same thing. The team confirmed to CBSSports.com that they'll be wearing their traditional navy jersey with white pants.
After Lions unveil their steel grey look on Saturday, the Browns will be the only team in the NFL that has yet to wear a Color Rush uniform. The Bears and Lions kick off at 4:30 p.m. ET from Ford Field in a game that will be televised by NFL Network.
