"Are bleeding/broken toe-nails common injuries as well...?"
Yes, this happens quite often I have noticed. When climbing inside the cage, the squirrels actually hold on to the metal cage with the nails on their feet. Depending on the level of their anxiety and how hyper they are, the nails can "come off" and the squirrel can make a real mess of the cage.

Here's a link to more squirrel removal information and pictures from Rid-A-Critter, an Atlanta animal control company.
