Jordan denied the allegations, saying he was taking part in via a foot damage.
“That is what warriors do,” Jordan told reporters. “What I do not want is (the NFL) telling me if I used to be damage or at optimum degree. It is unimaginable to take action.”
It is unclear if any of the coaches or the group itself filed an enchantment. With that stated, the actual fact Jordan received his case would give all sides a purpose to look into the matter and recoup any cash that will have already been paid.
On the time, the Saints denied all allegations of wrongdoing as nicely.
The NFL tried to ship a message by issuing huge fines to Jordan and Cincinnati Bengals defensive again Jessie Bates III for allegedly faking accidents in Week 13. Bates can be interesting his superb, however no phrase has come again but on a results of that case.
Because it stands, the NFL could also be seeing that regardless that faking accidents is dangerous for the aggressive spirit of the league, it is very exhausting to show.
