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

In the memo obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press, the NFL reminded teams of league policy that calls on coaches to discourage the practice, and that there was no specific rule on the topic.

However, two days after there was speculation the Giants' Deon Grant faked an injury against the Rams on Monday night, the NFL is warning of disciplinary action.

The memo says discipline "could include fines of coaches, players, and clubs, suspensions or forfeiture of draft choices."
