EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- A somewhat miffed Deon Grant denied faking an injury to slow down the St. Louis Rams' no-huddle offense and give the Giants' defense time to rest in Monday night's nationally televised game.

The veteran safety insisted Wednesday he hurt his right knee making a tackle on Cadillac Williams after an 8-yard run to the Giants 7 late in the first quarter.

The Rams told the NFL on Tuesday they suspected Tom Coughlin's team was faking injuries, and quarterback Sam Bradford added it was obvious the Giants were wasting time.

On Wednesday, the NFL sent a memo to all 32 teams warning of fines, suspensions and loss of draft picks if it determines players faked injuries during a game.
