League taking faking injuries serious if teams get caught.

The Lions, like a number of teams, have incorparted the no-huddle into their offense. Others are having the QB call out plays at the LOS not allowing defenses to sub in and out.

I was thinking about this from a defensive perspective and can thought that veteran savvy players might fake an injury in order to stop momentum or get personnel changes onto the field. Hopefully this can curtail any thoughts around that.

Since the referrees can't determine whether the injury is fake or not, the players should be forced to the sidelines until a change of possession takes place. If the injury is real, that shouldn't be a big deal, because it's likely the player wasn't going to return that soon anyways. As for the idea that a player would then be more likely to stay in despite the injury, they try to do that now when they aren't faking it. So what difference would there be?

Didn't a team last year call out saying we were faking injuries?

Faking injuries is nothing new, but it's never been done as poorly as the Giants did. Most cases you can't really judge whether a guy is really hurt or not...but in this case it was blatant as day.
