UNDATED - Thursday Night Football returns to CBS and WAFB on September 15 at 7:30 p.m. and the "color rush" uniforms are also back, with some of the proceeds from those uniforms going toward Louisiana football programs.
The NFL announced in a news release that the first $500,000 raised by the color rush initiative will help replace youth and high school football equipment lost in last month's flood. The money will also repair fields.
The NFL said it wants to "get the players back in the game."
The color rush apparel is available at NFLShop.com.
