A newsie named Kid Blink does have an eyepatch, we do not know if he was born with one eye or it was injured though. Maybe he's just blind in one eye.

It's implied in act 2 of the stage musical that Les has a broken arm after the Newsies are attacked since he's holding it in a sling all the way through

No, but it is implied that many of the newsies are orphans.

Almost all the handshakes between the Newsies are done by them spitting onto their hand first.

There is a G-rated implication toward the end of the movie. Two boys corner and grab a girl, forcing her into an alleyway. She fights but is unable to free herself. Her brother runs over and they taunt him with "We've got the best part of your family right here." Then it ends when they get into a fight with the brother.

A disabled character is referred to as a "crip" (short for cripple), a "gimp", and has the nickname "Crutchy".

There is a boxing scene about 15 minutes in with a fair amount of blood on the boxers' faces.

Kids are hungry, poor, orphaned, have their labor exploited, and are forcibly institutionalized in unpleasant "homes."
