The Titans and Browns didn’t play in Week 13, so they didn’t get to participate in the NFL’s “My Cause My Cleats” weekend. Players across the league were allowed to wear special cleats that didn’t conform to the league’s usual uniform rules in support of various causes and endeavors.
The NFL has come to its senses and reversed course regarding the Browns and Titans. NFL Senior Vice President of Communications Natalie Ravitz said Monday that the league reached out to both teams to confirm they could participate in Week 14, when the Browns host the Bengals and the Titans host the Broncos.
The NFL originally said that players from those teams wouldn’t be exempt from the usual uniform rules, and at least two Titans players had reportedly planned to risk the fine and wear their special cleats anyway.
So, this solution seems best. And makes you wonder why it took so long to get here.
