I take just from the first sentence that Leighton is to present himself to the club for examination upon injury.

And this one (also Clause 5) - emphasis mine:

Uh ohhhhhhhhhhhh.
Well, fishy in this case. It isn't like he injured himself bull riding, or doing motorcycle tricks in a parking lot.

We have an injury sustained playing hockey and supposedly aggravated while training to play hockey (no real problem here). By all accounts the Flyers were aware of the issue over the summer and I think I recall reading that they had someone check it out at some point, but just thought it was a back strain (of course, by all accounts the Flyers were not aware that this was back pain that had been around since the playoffs).

So, what we need is clear wording on him not mentioning that he had some nagging pain that may or may not be something that needs to be dealt with...
