The NFL’s yearly #MyCauseMyCleats weekend has actually shown up. It’s the one weekend of the season where gamers can use shoes that are not team-specific and within the NFL’s consistent guidelines.

Indianapolis Colts guard Quenton Nelson, a three-time All-Pro gamer, will be supporting the V Foundation in Sunday’s video game versus the Houston Texans.

Nelson, who had an auntie and uncle die of cancer, stated that he has actually been influenced and inspired by Jim Valvano’s renowned “Don’t give up … Don’t ever give up” ESPYS speech. Valvano offered the speech in 1993 while fighting cancer. That speech introduced the V Foundation for Cancer Research, in collaboration with ESPN.

“Jimmy V’s, ‘Don’t Give Up’ speech has had a big impact on my life … ,” Nelson informed ESPN’s Mike Wells. “A couple times a year, my best friends and I get together and have ‘Jimmy V nights’ where we have some beers, cigars, scotch and music staying up till 3 a.m., and we try to laugh, think and cry like Jim said in his speech.”

As an ambassador for the V Foundation, and through his own “Blocking Cancer” effort for the V Foundation, Nelson has actually raised over $79,000 towards discovering a remedy for cancer.

Here are a few of the other cleat styles that gamers will use this weekend:
