    Sanchez knee brace

    I know Mark had a dislocated left kneecap last year and he is wearing a large knee brace during practice. Is this going to be a problem throughout his career? I know that you cant run as well with a knee brace on.

    It looks pretty flexible, like a pad sort of. I can't imagine that would harm his mobility much.

    I did not know that.

    But now that you bring up the knee brace thing, I noticed he has a small tourniquet around each wrist, I wonder if his hands are numb?

    I found it more of an observation and a question then a complaint, regardless this is what we do best here.:D

    sanchez had no structural damage with the dislocation. while it's a possibility to re-occur, the brace should protect him - he definitely was wearing it all last year, and looked pretty good in the process.. didnt he?

    i've had dislocation issues as a kid, and even now wear a brace for running - it's really lightweight, and gives the knee cap some support to stay aligned - and is not something that will inhibit him in any way on the field.

    Looks like a straight forward neoprene knee sleeve with a patella cutout. Not unusual for someone to use who has a history of patellar dislocation. Gives some support, but mostly proprioceptive effects and a feeling of security. No big deal, IMO.

    Yeah...there's nothing to worry about, we just wasted how many picks, drafted him 5th overall, and guaranteed him how much money?

    I really...really hope this cat doesn't end up being a holdout for contract negotiations.
