The Redskins' decision to ditch their all-gold Color Rush uniform for Thursday's game against the Cowboys won't come with a punishment from the NFL because the league was on board with Washington's decision to make a last-second color change. When the Color Rush uniforms were originally unveiled for every NFL team back in September 2016, Nike designed an all-gold look for the Redskins that the team hated. As matter of fact, the Redskins hated the look so much that they actually proposed a rule change in March that would allow teams to opt out of wearing their Color Rush uniforms. However, the rule was never voted on because the Redskins pulled it off the table before the spring league meeting. The game against the Cowboys marked the Redskins' first Color Rush game and instead of going with Nike's original design, the Redskins decided to go with an all-burgundy look. Although there were several reports that indicated the Redskins might get hit with a fine for ditching their gold jerseys -- as part of a uniform violation -- that won't be happening.
