The New York Giants were called out for faking injuries on Monday night to slow down the Rams’ no-huddle offense. It was pretty obvious that they were flopping considering two players went down at the same time the Giants were trying to make substitutions. The Rams sent in an official complaint, the league sent a memo to all 32 teams, and there has been talk about how to police the situation. But if you listen to Deon Grant tell it, there is no need for all of this.
The Giants defensive back is defying all reason and logic with his latest comments, and he’s telling us not to believe what we saw.
Grant was upset that he was being accused of faking injuries. He told reporters that he banged knees with an opponent on the previous play and listened to his teammates who told him to just go down. He’s arguing that his knee injury is legitimate, and he took the accusations as an affront to his toughness.
