NFL allowing players to post personal messages on their cleats for one week

No official word on whether the National Football League is imposing fines on players who put 9/11 tributes on their cleats, but a report claims the league will allow players to post personal messages on their cleats for one week (week 13).

SI.com reports the NFL will allow the players to post personal messages, but are unsure why the league chose the weekend of December 4.

Players can promote a charitable cause of their choice, as long as that charity or cause is approved by the league prior to the allowed week. Criteria used by the NFL in approving charities is also unknown.

Players and coaches can be seen wearing pink during October as the NFL regularly honors the victims of breast cancer.

The NFL could announce the plan later this week on the rules and regulations of the messages on cleats.
