CARLISLE, Pa. -- Fitted with a protective brace for his surgically repaired right knee, Washington Redskins defensive end Charles Mann said he will test the knee for the first time in practice today.
Mann, who had arthroscopic surgery last February, said he plans to wear the brace no longer than a month and a half. "There is no pain," he said. "The brace is there for added security because my right knee is not as strong as the other knee."
It is doubtful, however, that Mann will play in Sunday night's preseason opener in Pittsburgh.
