    Robert Griffin III's return to the NFL was bumpy, and not just because of his uneven accuracy. The league apparently had a problem with Griffin's knee brace during the Washington Redskins' season opener Monday night.

    "Everybody in the league kept calling down to our sideline saying that I didn't cover the brace up," Griffin said after the 33-27 home loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. "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."

    That shirt, worn in the preseason, said "Operation Patience" on the front. Griffin might have to extend the operation deep into September as he rounds into form this season.

    Perhaps they should supply him with stockings for the next game?

    How is it miscommunicated that there are two options for players?

    1. Wear the brace under their uniform (hidden) or
    2. Wear the brace on top of the uniform (not hidden)

    I can see the difficulty in communicating that. :icon_scratch:
