When Robert Griffin III returned to practice Wednesday, the Redskins’ quarterback did so sporting a brace on his right knee. 

Griffin suffered a Grade 1 sprain of the LCL in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Ravens. In his first practice since then, he wore a brace under black sweat pants that appeared to be strapped around his upper calf and lower thigh, with a hinge in between.

Griffin acknowledged that the brace will take some getting used to. But the NFL's leading rusher among quarterbacks also said that his experience wearing one as a junior at Baylor will help if he chooses to wear one upon returning to the Redskins' lineup.

“I wore one the year after [tearing] my ACL for the whole year,” Griffin said, referring to the 2010 campaign at Baylor. “So I have to get back used to [wearing a brace]. But I’ve played with one before and I think it will help me if I do decide to brace-up and play.”
