After three seasons of “Color Rush,” the monochromatic uniforms won’t be a Thursday Night Football staple anymore, according to Fox Sports executive Bill Wanger.
At NAB Show — a convention for the media, entertainment and technology industry — Wanger said Fox plans to go in a different direction for Thursday Night Football and steer away from “gimmicks” to get fans to watch. Color Rush was apparently one of those gimmicks.
But this doesn’t mean Color Rush alternates are gone, altogether. Nike is still the uniform provider of the NFL, the alternate uniforms already exist, and they will probably just be moved to another night of the week or used sporadically on Sundays. It just won’t be exclusive to Thursday nights.
The real challenge for Fox, though, will be if they can keep Thursday Night Football games from continuing to be poopfests . That remains to be seen.
He added of his recovery: “I’ve skipped steps before and I’ve paid for it before, and I’m not gonna do that again.”
Luck did suggest that he was making progress, however, noting, “If I wasn’t making progress, I would freak out,” per Holder. He also said his right arm is “feeling really good,” according to George Bremer of CNHI Sports Indiana.
“Still a bit of the journey left. Wanna be on the field with my teammates. Wanna be the best I can be,” Luck continued, per Kravitz, adding: “Not changing my throwing motion, but there are things I can do better from the ground up and that’s what been working on. Using my entire body.”
Luck also hinted that playing hurt in the past may have contributed to his recent injury woes
As Holder wrote, “One of the things Andrew Luck admitted in a vague way was that there might have been some impact from his decision to play hurt in 2015-16. This is a bigger factor in his issues than anyone has really admitted, from what I’ve been told.”
