CLEVELAND - At Thursday's prime time Browns game against the Buffalo Bills, the Browns will host breast cancer patients, survivors and their family members.
October is breast cancer awareness month so you can expect Browns players and other NFL teams to be wearing pink on part of their uniforms. Expect to see pink cleats, socks, gloves, towels, ribbons and possibly pink on the game ball when players take the field.
At Thursday night's game, the Browns will recognize five breast cancer survivors. They will be serving as honorary coin-toss captains. The team will also host eighty more breast cancer survivors and loved ones. They will help unfold a pink ribbon flag on the field.
Fans will be given a pink ribbon to wear when they enter FirstEnergy Stadium.
Some of the Browns players have been directly impacted by breast cancer.
Joe Thomas's mother-in-law has breast cancer and Leon McFadden has family members and loved ones who are breast cancer survivors.
