The lengths to which the Giants will go to sell their fake injuries is impressive.
According to Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger, the Giants placed linebacker Dan Connor on injured reserve Thursday.
Connor left Sunday’s game with the Cowboys with what was described as a burner. That caused Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to mock the Giants and say they were faking injuries to slow the game down, despite the fact Connor didn’t return to the game.
The starting middle linebacker told reporters Thursday he didn’t think the injury was serious, but it apparently was.
The Giants already used their IR/designated for return label on running back Andre Brown, which eliminated the possibility of Connor coming back this season.
