Chicago Bears Go Pink

Greg Olsen has worn the pink bracelet ever since his mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, but this Sunday he'll take it to the next level.  Players around the league will be wearing pink gear to raise money.

He hasn't been without one in eight years, not since his mother, Sue, was diagnosed with breast cancer. His first one broke, and he quickly replaced it.

So wearing pink to support breast cancer awareness is nothing new for Olsen. But wearing pink gear (cleats, gloves, helmet decals, etc.) for a game will be.

Olsen was happy -- tickled pink, you might say -- to step forward to be part of an initiative the NFL is calling "A Crucial Catch: Annual Screening Saves Lives." Starting Sunday and continuing through the month, the league is encouraging annual mammograms for women older than 40 by having players wear pink gear.

Jay Cutler, Lance Briggs and Juaquin Iglesias also will participate for the Bears.
