While anything is possible, I doubt very much that any player on our team would ever fake an injury... especially a player who is known for his toughness. Back injuries are almost impossible to play though. It can feel 100% one second and then send a jolting pain through your body the next. It is much tougher to play through than a constant pain. If anyone deserved the benefit of the doubt, it is AI. Also, he was injured before he lost his starting job.
