RG3's Knee Brace Wont Be like Kryptonite Anymore

It turns out the game in San Francisco wasn’t the only place where the NFL officials made a critical mistake.

In Washington, the officials also made an embarrassing error that may have cost the Redskins the game. Players are supposed to have the option to a knee brace inside or outside their pants. Robert Griffin III was forced to cover up his knee brace with his pads and sock.

Refusal would have resulted in a fine. The mistake affected the way RG3 played the game as he later stated in an interview:

“I don’t understand that one, but that’s why we had to continue to do some stuff to cover up the brace with my sock… I don’t know what the league is doing. I got fined 10 grand for a shrift, so I don’t know.”

The Packers should be wary of this.

RG3 will become more of a run threat now that his leg will have more movement.

Hopefully the Packers can put together a brick wall on the defensive line again. With Alfred Morris and RG3 in the backfield, the Packers will definitely need it.
