(FootballStL) -- Questions quickly arose following the suspicious injuries the New York Giants defense had as the St. Louis Rams marched down the field while threatening to score on Monday night.
Giants defender Deon Grant suddenly went down with an injury as the Rams were moving the ball during their no-huddle offense which had seemed to wear down the Giants defense.
Grant eventually got up on his feet, headed to the sidelines, refused to see a trainer and quickly put on his helmet to return.
Many were suspicious of the injury including Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo.
“I’m not sure where to go with that one,” Spagnuolo told reporters on Tuesday. “They (the referees) can’t make the decision that somebody is hurt or not hurt. I don’t know, part of the game I guess.”
Spagnuolo believes the play is under review by league officials, but noted that no one in the Rams organization had contacted the league regarding the issue.
