Did Chester wear a leg brace?

Chester Goode, Matt Dillion's friend and deputy for the first nine years (1955-64) of the TV version of Gunsmoke was given the limp and "twangy" accent by the actor Dennis Weaver. In the radio version, he was Chester Wesley Proudfoot and he had no limp. The right leg was the stiff one, and Dennis Weaver did not wear a brace to make him remember how to walk.

No reason was ever stated in the script for the bum leg, but Chester had been in the cavalry and had been a cattle driver in Texas.
