Eric Mangini not so sure those injured Detroit Lions were really injured

A day after his team lost to the Detroit Lions, Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini wondered aloud if some of the injuries incurred by the winning team were really injuries.

Mangini noted that several players that left the field with injuries later returned. Apparently his inner conspiracy theorist thinks this may have been a ploy to slow down the Browns’ no-huddle offense.

“I’m just saying there were a lot of them,” Mangini said.

The leader of the 1-9 Browns was also unhappy with a defensive pass interference call at the end of regulation that allowed Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford to throw the game-winning touchdown pass.
