Jimmy Garoppolo And the Curious Knee Brace

 

Late in Sundays blowout win over Chicago, Jimmy G got some snaps, most notably getting sacked by Lamarr Houston who then preceeded to celebrate sacking the backup by blowing out his knee.

Speaking of knees, I noticed Garoppolo wearing a knee brace on his left knee, much like Brady. Brady obviously had his knee injury back in 2008 that led to him donning the brace since his return. Garoppolo wasn’t wearing one in pre-season. On a closer look, he WAS wearing once against Kansas City. So something happened between pre season and the regular season that led to this.

I wonder if the knee brace is a precautionary measure, hoping to prevent any serious injuries before they happen.

Pre Season, no knee brace

It looks like it’s just a new piece of equipment for him.
