Regular knee brace? how much if any limitation does it cause?


It's not a giant loss of mobility. It is interesting to me. I know lots of guys wear those right after surgery or injury to protect but I wonder if all the driving run plays make them think their legs are going to whacked more. I hope that's why...

For an OL I doubt there is much limitation. Guys have been wearing them because they're thought to help prevent serious knee injuries when your leg gets fallen on (as well as obviously stabilizing the knee). I'm surprised more linemen on both sides of the ball don't wear them given the frequency of guys blowing out their knees by getting their leg rolled up on or caught in a pile.

Any loss of mobility for a defender I think is viewed as an insane risk to one's livelihood. For O-lineman I get it though.

That's why i asked about the limitation it causes, seems like the smart thing to do for most offensive linemen but they don't, so there must be some kind of issue with it.

By the way, Kraft is such a boss throughout this video, taking some shots at the Jets.

Wish Kraft would talk less. All this damage control he's been doing recently has been foot in mouth after foot in mouth.

Is the team going to be in pads either tomorrow or Sunday?

Sunday. Under the new CBA I don't think they're allowed to practice in pads for the first two sessions.

Nice to see that Dobson apparently passed Michael Jenkins already.

Nicer to see Jamie Collins already running with the 1s. I hope they move Hightower inside permanently and let Spikes walk after this year.

Not much, dobson was.targeted every other throw it seemed and did well.
Sounds like the Pats feel a strong sense of urgency to integrate Dobson.
They do this with every new receiver that's supposed to contribute. I remember Brady targeting Lloyd a lot last year and Ocho the year before that.

Please don't jinx it. Laughing I really hope Dobson makes it with us because he has great hands and good leaping ability with my only question being his speed but according to NBT that's not an issue.
