After last night’s loss to the Eagles, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III told reporters that the NFL had a problem with his knee brace. If you noticed, he started the game with the brace on the outside of his uniform and then moved it underneath so he could cover it with his sock.
“Everybody in the league kept calling down to our sideline saying that I didn’t cover the brace up,” Griffin said, via NFL.com. “I don’t understand that one, but that’s why we had to continue to do some stuff to cover the brace up with my sock.”
“I don’t know what the league’s doing,” Griffin added. “I got fined 10 grand for a shirt, so I don’t know.”
I understand the NFL having a strict uniform policy, but I had no idea that they were this petty over a knee brace.
