Giants linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka questioned anyone who would accuse a player of faking an injury.

“I really think that is a dangerous path to go down,” he said. “If you start letting referees decide whether a player is hurt or not it might come back to bite them big time.”

Kiwanuka made that statement before hearing about the league’s memo, and he seemed concerned when told about it.

“It’s going to put players in a position where if they are uncertain about an injury they might stay on the field a little longer and make the injury worse, and that might lead to lawsuits,” Kiwanuka said. “I think it’s inappropriate.”
