Saints Accused By NFL Of Giving Directions To Player To Fake An Injury

One of the newest hot topics in the NFL is teams faking injuries to slow down the other team.

The NFL fined the Saints $550,000 for allegedly giving directions to DE Cameron Jordan to fake an injury during the game against the Bucs.

Yahoo Sports reported:

The NFL reportedly fined the New Orleans Saints $550,000 after defensive end Cameron Jordan went down with an allegedly fake injury in a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.

Jordan’s injury forced a stoppage during the fourth quarter as the Buccaneers sped to set up on the line of scrimmage at fourth-and-10.

Cameras allegedly captured Jordan “receiving direction” from the sideline to go down with an injury and force the stoppage, according to Florio.

The Saints have denied this.

Cam Jordan called the fine “ridiculous.”
