Tom Lewand: Lions' black uniforms discarded

President Tom Lewand has confirmed that the Detroit Lions have discarded their black uniforms.
Under the league's "third uniform program,'' the Lions will go back to using their throwbacks as their third uniform (home and road uniforms account for the first two).
"I love our throwbacks,'' Lewand said.
The black uniforms were introduced by former Lions president Matt Millen in 2005. Because last season was part of Detroit's 75th anniversary, the team was allowed to substitute their throwbacks for their black uniforms in two games. That switch is now official and permanent.
It's possible that minor changes could come to the team's standard jerseys as well as the team's logo, but Lewand refused to comment. No changes are expected to be made for the 2009 season.
