New NFL safety rule scraps Bucs’ throwback uniforms

TAMPA, Fla. (TBO.com)- A new NFL safety rule that requires players to where the same fitted helmet all season means the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won’t be able to wear their orange throwback uniforms as planned this month.

The uniforms, which feature a white helmet with the “Bucco Bruce” logo, were scheduled to be worn Sept. 29 against the Arizona Cardinals. Instead, the Bucs must wear their standard uniforms, which use a pewter-colored helmet, the team announced Tuesday.

The guideline was recently implemented based on the strong recommendation by the NFL’s Head, Neck and Spine Committee as well as the Player Safety Advisory Panel, the team said in a news release.
