A former NFL player has accused the NFL of creating a knee- brace for athletes who suffer from repetitive strains in their knees.
In a letter published by the Associated Press, Jason Taylor wrote that the brace is a “slightly restrictive device designed to make athletes more comfortable and reduce their impact on the joints.”
The brace was not approved by the league for use by NFL players, but Taylor said that the league should have known better.
“The NFL has not authorized any knee brace for football players or any other athletes,” Taylor wrote.
“This is why I strongly urge the NFL to reconsider its policies on the brace and to consider alternatives to the current brace. “
“If the NFL cannot change its policy regarding the brace, then the best course of action is to let athletes continue with their normal practices and compete without the brace.” “
Taylor, a defensive lineman from San Diego, said in the letter that he was hurt playing in the NFL and that he now has chronic pain in his knees and ankle. “

Taylor, a defensive lineman from San Diego, said in the letter that he was hurt playing in the NFL and that he now has chronic pain in his knees and ankle.
He said the brace has helped him perform better and he has been able to get back to the game faster.
“I’m now a more effective player because I no longer have to worry about my knees,” he wrote.
The brace is made of titanium and is sold by a company called Vionic Sandals.
In an interview with The Associated Press in December, Taylor said he was not aware of any research into the brace.
The NFL has been criticized for its use of bracelets and bracelets in the past.
In 2014, the league banned the use of the brace for players who suffered from repetitive strain injuries to their knees, ankles or shoulders.
A report from the NFL’s executive committee recommended that the NFL “implement an independent evaluation of all knee brace devices that are currently in use” to see if they can be safely used by players.
The committee also recommended that NFL owners review their policies on bracelets.
Taylor said in his letter that the knee brace is designed to “improve the health of football players” and “allow them to participate in a sport that requires them to wear a rigid brace.”
“In addition to reducing the risk of a player’s knees and/or ankles getting hurt, the brace also allows for greater flexibility of the knees and ankles, which makes it more comfortable for the athlete and their coach,” Taylor said.
The Associated Statesman reported last month that Taylor was part of a lawsuit against the league that was filed in 2013.
In the suit, Taylor argued that the braces are not approved for use in NFL players.
In response to the AP’s report, Taylor told The Associated News that he had received many emails and phone calls from people who wanted to know more about the bracelets he used.
“But the reality is that we were not given a reason to know if they were approved for the use by the NFL,” he said.
“We are in the process of making an informed decision based on what we have learned.”
