No moment ever comes without excitement with the Redskins, and the reveal of their color rush uniforms for Thursday night's game in Dallas fit the same billing.
Redskins radio analyst Chris Cooley revealed Wednesday morning that Washington will wear burgundy jerseys and burgundy pants when they face the Cowboys, while speaking on ESPN980.
Asked about the uniforms on Tuesday afternoon, 'Skins coach Jay Gruden said he did not know what the plan was in Dallas. Typically, teams wear special mono-color uniforms for Thursday night games.
The NFL revealed an all mustard yellow combination as the Redskins assigned color rush uniforms last season. The team did not wear them as they played a traditional Thanksgiving Thursday afternoon game.
It's also widely known that the Redskins brass hated the all yellow look, as the team proposed a rule change at the NFL Owner's Meetings this spring to outlaw the color rush uniforms. The Redskins rule proposal called the uniforms "garish."
Cooley allowed that it's possible the Redskins' uniform choice could still change before the team hits the field Thursday night. Beyond the uniforms, the matchup will likely knock the loser out of NFC Wild Card contention.
The Cowboys are expected to wear an all-white combination, which means the Redskins' options would be limited to the all burgundy look, or the much despised all yellow combination.
The Redskins last wore the all burgundy scheme in 2008.
