NATIONAL FUTBOL LEAGUE:

Deon Grant falls to turf, feigns injury against Rams, but NFL won't discipline NY Giants safety (Ralph Vacchiano, 9/21/11, NY DAILY NEWS)

Deon Grant won't get an Academy Award for his performance on Monday night. He won't get punished by the NFL either.

That's because Tom Coughlin toed the company line Tuesday and said he believed Grant wasn't faking an injury when the veteran safety mysteriously dropped to the ground and stopped a Rams drive late in the first quarter of the Giants' 28-16 victory. And according to an NFL spokesman, a player can't be punished for faking an injury unless there is an admission of guilt.

"Well, from my standpoint on the sideline I thought he was cramped," Coughlin said. "At that point in time, all I noticed was a player down."

Actually, it was two players down, and "at that point in time" it was exactly what the Giants needed.
