Lions | Mangini implies team faked injuries Week 11

Tom Withers, of The Associated Press, reports Cleveland Browns head coach Eric Mangini believes the Detroit Lions faked some injuries to slow down the Browns' no-huddle offense Week 11. Mangini noted the Lions had several players leave the field injured, only to return. Mangini was asked if he was accusing the Lions of faking injuries. Mangini said, "I'm just saying there were a lot of them." Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said, "He's way out of bounds on that. That couldn't be further from the truth. Both teams were running no huddle, and the officials did a very good job of standing over the ball, so there was no need to do that." According to the official play-by-play, there were six different instances when the Lions had players leave the game with injuries. Each player returned to the game.
