The injuries are a red flag, I agree.
Correct. He was attempting to break it up. It really cracks me up the way people hear or read that a player has "character issues" and assume that he's a felon or a head case.
Canty's injuries are relatively insignificant too. He had a broken leg as a sophomore, which is a non-issue. He pulled knee ligaments. There was no tear. His eye could keep him out of mini-camps, but a detatched retina isn't like a blown knee. It's a serious injury, but as far as football goes, you don't run on your eyes.
