When will the Alternate Helmets be Worn?

Last season, the NFL implemented a new rule permitting teams to utilize a second alternate helmet in conjunction with the so-called classic, alternate, or Color Rush jerseys. According to the Lions, this helmet will only be worn with the All-Gray alternate uniforms in 2023.

When will the Lions get new uniforms?

Back in February, Rod Wood told reporters that the Lions will not get new uniforms until 2024, but when they do, it will be an “interesting overhaul.”

“There will not be new uniforms in 2023,” Wood said. “I know people get over their skis on that. It takes really two years to really get it going, so (Lions chief communications and brand officer) Brian (Facchini) and a team have been kind of working with Nike, looking at uniforms that will probably be for 2024. It could be an interesting overhaul of the uniforms. We will have a new alternative helmet though this year. We didn’t do that (last season).”
