Imagine this: It’s a balmy late-spring (June 14 is technically still spring) day. Your team’s rookie guard and veteran defensive tackle get into a bit of a tussle, a good old-fashioned offseason scrap.
In the process, the same team’s high-priced left tackle gets rolled up on.
Few more frivolous reasons for injury exist in this game than a nightmarish situation such as that. Instead, Solder is unharmed, and both Hernandez and Harrison are cleared of fault. No harm, no foul.

If Barnett can prove to the NFL that he can cross the face of tackles as a pass-rusher, giving him a shorter distance to the quarterback as a slower straight-line edge defender, that could go a long way for his career. Barnett is basically the only defensive end in Philadelphia promised any long-term money, meaning that his emergence could save the Eagles a lot of cap space should he command a starting role.
