GREEN BAY – And the color-rush color is …
The Packers have unveiled the color-rush uniforms for their Week 7 matchup against the Bears on Oct. 20 at Lambeau Field, and they will be all white.
The jersey is the Packers’ regular road jersey with new white pants to go with it. The color-rush uniform will be worn only for the one game this season.
The NFL began using color-rush uniforms on Thursday night games last season, but participation was optional. The Packers decided not to produce a color-rush uniform for their Thursday night contest in Detroit on Dec. 3.
This season, color-rush uniforms are mandatory, and rather than go all green with the current home jersey or all gold with the regular pants, the Packers are going with all white.
The last time the Packers wore their traditional white jersey for a game at Lambeau Field is believed to be on Sept. 17, 1989, for a game against New Orleans. Green Bay wore its regular gold pants that day.
The Bears will be going with an all-navy look, combining their traditional home jersey with their usual road pants. The Bears have worn the all-navy uniforms against the Packers before, including the prime-time contest on Monday, Oct. 7, 2002, when the Bears were playing their home games at the University of Illinois in Champaign.
