He didn't fake injuries, but he didn't do the work to prevent injuries, and stayed out for longer than seemed necessary, during which he trashed the coach while sitting in with broadcast announcers.
It comes down to this - he is not a great team guy as far as fighting tooth and nail and has been a tremendous underachiever throughout his career. I don't mind welcoming him back with a fist bump and a yawn. Forgiving is always good. There is no need for special honors.
