doesn't present itself as being a lateral float issue as much as a longitudinal stability issue
Agree. There's no way for me to know what caused the injury. But one cause is excessive dorsiflexion, which basically means bringing your toe up towards your shin too far too many times ("heel down rider"). Improper sadddle height can certainly cause excessive dorsiflexion ("digging"). Another cause could be a cleat that's mounted too far forward. A forward cleat makes it more probable that you drop your cantilevered heel, especially when tired. The further forward the cleat, the longer that cantilever.
