Jeremy Fowler of the Orlando Sentinel reports Washaun Ealey's words:

“I had my eyes closed, and he really didn’t gouge my eyes," Ealey said. "My eyes are OK. He really didn’t get his hands close to my eyes. He was out there playing football and having fun.”

Gee, maybe the media brain-trust should get all the facts before accusing someone of the Flippin'-Crime-Of-The-Century.
