Lions WR Calvin Johnson Expects To Play In Pain This Season
Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson said he had to take painkillers before the game to play on his injured left knee on Sunday, Anwar Richardson of Mlive reports.
It appears Johnson's latest injury is a question Johnson will face for the rest of the year.
Johnson said his back injury as a rookie was more painful than the knee. So far, Johnson's injuries this season have been a finger, ankle, concussion, and now his knee.
Although Johnson pushed through Sunday's game, he does not expect the knee to feel better anytime soon.
"It's probably something I'm going to have to deal with," Johnson said. "As much running as we do, especially in this game, it's stuff that really could take the whole season to get over with. It would be great if it can get over it before.
"It's something that I expect to linger. You just got to stay on top of it with treatments."
