NFL: League warns teams about faking injuries

To the fake handoff and fake field goals, add fake injuries.

The NFL sent a memo Wednesday to all 32 teams warning of fines, suspensions and loss of draft picks if the league determines players faked injuries during a game. Yet several players admit its an accepted practice, and some coaches hinted they are not above condoning phony injuries if it provides a competitive edge.

"I've been places where it has been (taught)," said Browns linebacker Scott Fujita, a member of the players union executive committee. "They have a name for it, and I've been places where it's been pre-called. I've been places where it's one player who has been designated. Maybe I'm getting everyone in trouble, but I'm just being honest."

In the memo obtained by The Associated Press, the NFL reminded teams of league policy that calls on coaches to discourage the practice.
Nonetheless, two days after there was speculation the Giants' Deon Grant faked an injury against the Rams during Monday night's game, the NFL is warning of disciplinary action.

Giants: A somewhat miffed Grant denied faking an injury to slow down the St. Louis Rams' no-huddle offense and give the Giants' defense time to rest in Monday night's game.

The veteran safety insisted Wednesday he hurt his right knee making a tackle on Cadillac Williams after an 8-yard run to the Giants 7 late in the first quarter.

Anyone see the tape of the Giants that prompted the investigation? They should definitely be fined. It was a Kennedy-esque bullet that got two players simultaneously.
