Maurice Canady honors fallen police officer at NFL Combine

INDIANAPOLIS -- Maurice Canady was running for more than himself Monday at the NFL Scouting Combine.

The Virginia defensive back was running for a cause, as well. Canady will auction off his cleats and donate proceeds to the memorial fund of a police officer killed in the line of duty over the weekend.

The officer, Ashley Guindon, was working her first shift on the job in Woodbridge, Va., and was killed after responding to a domestic violence call. According to USA Today, two other officers were injured when Army Sgt. Ronald Hamilton allegedly opened fire as police arrived.

Canady's own experience might have informed his decision to pay tribute on Monday -- he has an aunt who was murdered and a cousin who is a police officer.

Canady ran a 4.49 40-yard dash Monday, tied for 10th-best among the first group of DBs to run at the combine.
