NFL clears Giants of faking injuries


The NFL announced on Tuesday that after reviewing the tape there is no evidence to suggest that New York Giants players Dan Conner and Cullen Jenkins deliberately “faked” injuries on Sunday night in an effort to slow down the Dallas Cowboys offense.  Due to the NFL’s findings the league has said there is no basis for punishment at this time.

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo as well as owner Jerry Jones both suggested that the Giants violated league policy on Sunday night, although the team never filed an official complain with the league office.

Giants linebacker Dan Conner did not return to the game after he left the field with a Stinger. Cullen Jenkins did return to the field after an undisclosed injury kept him out of the game for one play.

When asked about the subject by reporters Giants head coach Tom Coughlin denied any fould play on Big Blue’s part.

“Absolutely not true.”  “Both of those players were injured,” Coughlin insisted in a Monday conference call. “Connor never returned to the game. And Cullen was in a position where he needed to regroup. So that wasn’t orchestrated at all.”
