NEW YORK (AP) -The NFL will honor the late Gene Upshaw with his initials and his uniform number stenciled on the field for all 16 games this opening weekend.
The league had announced that all NFL players would wear a patch all season with the initials ``GU'' and the number 63, his former uniform number to honor the Hall of Fame guard and longtime union leader, who died two weeks ago.
It originally announced they also would be stenciled on the field for the season opener at Giants Stadium between the Redskins and Giants and for the Denver-Oakland game at Oakland, where Upshaw played his entire 15 seasons.
It extended that Tuesday to all games. A video tribute to Upshaw will also be shown.
