So I assume the rule is an injury does not stop the "game clock", but just want to confirm that because I thought it did - at least for the offensive team. Obviously "fake" injuries should not help the defensive team.
Fake or not, the Referee in this situation has the discretion to and should withold the starting of the clock until the snap.
