Knee braces mandatory for O-line

Posted by Chris Brown on July 29, 2010 – 8:04 pm

One small particular that stood out at training camp Thursday was the presence of knee braces on both the legs of every offensive lineman on the roster.

Talking to Demetrius Bell following his first practice back from a long knee rehab, Bell said they don’t have a choice.

“It’s mandatory,” he said. “We’ve got to wear them at practice on both legs.”

Bell did say he understood the reasoning behind it and coming off of knee surgery he doesn’t mind the extra protection. Knowing camp is likely to be more physical in the past, the knee braces are worth mandating to keep players healthy and on the field.
