Sorry, I'm just sick of the knee injuries plaguing this team.
Because braces work by limiting movement. That's why it's beneficial to an injured knee...it doesn't allow full range of motion, and provides resistance to help protect it. There's already an over the knee brace design that provides almost no resistance, and is very light weight. You probably know it by it's common name...pants. Anything more effective than pants will limit mobility.
