Patriots Receiver Admits He Faked An Injury Against The Bills
The Bills lost a tough one up in Foxboro against the New England Patriots this past Saturday, 24-17.
One of the most-talked about moments from the game was when New England had a long touchdown pass to tight end Ben Watson called back due to a offensive pass interference call against Patriots wide receiver, Julian Edelman, when he collided with Bills safety Jordan Poyer.
Edelman laid motionless on the field for a few seconds and was taken out of the game for a few drives due to an apparent head injury.
But according to WKBW, Edelman admitted to reporters that he faked the injury.
Edelman said he ""was trying to sell it.” and, "hopefully, they didn’t see it.”
The Patriots were later called for another offensive pass interference in the game on a similar "pick" play -- this time on Ben Watson.
Bills actually benefited from the exaggerated injury however, since Edelman had to come out of the game for a while with a potential concussion, which is required by the NFL.
