According to the Detroit News, while Lions’ head coach Jim Schwartz wouldn’t confirm that wide receiver Calvin Johnson played with three broken fingers on one hand, he also wouldn’t deny it.
“I am not going to comment on any of our players’ health,” he said. “But that’s not uncommon for a wide receiver.”
Johnson, who played with at least two broken fingers most of the season and managed to break the NFL record for receiving yards in a season, has been seen around town with his hand wrapped.
“We don’t have any injury reports this time of year,” Schwartz said. “And you know how I am about injuries.”
I can’t imagine playing with one broken finger, never mind two or three.
The good news is that Johnson is expected to be ready for OTA’s and training camp.
