Network injectors and network sniffers


Newbie question on networking here:

I read an article on network tools (tcpdump, wireshark, nmap etc)

One big distinction was made between network sniffers and network injectors. Of course, I cannot find the article anymore on the internet.

A brief explanation would be more than welcome.
