Despite earlier reports, the NFL will now allow Bears receiver Brandon Marshall to wear green shoes for Thursday night's game against the New York Giants.
As late as Wednesday morning, Marshall thought that he would not be permitted on the field wearing the green shoes he planned as a way to call attention to Mental Health Awareness Week, which began last Sunday and runs through Saturday.

Marshall plans to match the fine with a donation to charity.
