GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Packers will wear their throwback jerseys and pants on October 20th, when they host the Cleveland Browns.
But they will not wear the dark brown helmets which go with that uniform.
The NFL has ordered teams to use their normal helmets, amid concerns that the alternate helmets won't fit as well -- thus raising the risk of concussions.
The Packers' throwback uniform consists of a dark blue jersey with a gold circle on the chest with the number -- plus tan pants and blue socks. It's what the Packers wore in their 1929 NFL championship season.
The players will stay their regular cheese-gold helmets -- but the "G" decal will be removed, as will the stripe down the middle.
The throwback is a third uniform for the Packers. They wore it once in 2010 and once in '11. They were not worn last season.
