Former Virginia Cavaliers star cornerback Maurice Canady ran his 40-yard dash at the NFL combine Monday, but before taking the field Canady wrote the name of Prince William County police officer Ashley Guindon -- who was shot and killed Saturday while responding to a domestic incident -- on his cleats. Guindon had been sworn in the day before, and was working her first shift on the job.

Canady isn't the only player using his platform at the combine to address social issues. Former Ohio State star Ezekiel Elliott wore a special pair of cleats to raise awareness for victims of domestic abuse last week.
