Chris Canty was granted a medical exemption to wear his multi-barred facemask for the upcoming 2013 season.

Offensive linemen have grown accustomed to Chris Canty's bizarre-looking facemask potentially adding an intimidation factor during games.

Even Terrell Suggs and Ray Lewis joined in on the act a year ago.

To continue using the facemask Canty had to file a medical clearance to the league office for approval. Canty's appeal was granted and he'll be able to continue using the facemask according to NFL.com.

Canty suffered an eye injury in 2005 and feels the need for the added protection on the field.
