NFL Says Giants Did Not Fake Injuries

At the conclusion of the Cowboys 36-31 victory over the Giants on Sunday Night, Jerry Jones accused the G-men of faking injuries.

“I thought us experts on football were the only ones who could see that,” Jones said, laughing and winking. “No, it was so obvious it was funny. It wasn’t humorous because we really wanted the advantage, and knew we could get it if we could get the ball snapped.”

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten was also seen yelling, “He’s faking it!” during an injury timeout in the game.

The players in question were Dan Connor and Cullen Jenkins, who stayed on the ground during the Cowboys no-huddle offense.

ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that the NFL has reviewed the accusations by Jones and have, “found no basis for punishment at this time”.

So basically, the NFL couldn’t prove that guys weren’t hurt when they were acting like they were hurt. Makes sense to me!

Impossible to control players faking injuries and it happens at all levels. In fact, I’m going to fake a vocal injury before my 1pm show today and go to the movies instead.

Although now that I’ve exploited my plot in writing, perhaps I’ll hold off for another day on that.
