Luck’s knee brace explained

Andrew Luck wears a brace on his left knee but hasn’t injured it. Mike Chappell got to the bottom of the mystery:

Former Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh had his quarterbacks play with a brace on their left knee. And that had nothing to do with whether the player had had knee issues in the past.

“Stability,’’ Luck said. “The theory behind it is that’s the lead leg as a quarterback when you’re throwing. You’re stepping and that’s sort of where bodies are flying in the pocket.’’

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
