Calvin Johnson Dealing with High Ankle Sprain

Detroit Lions star wide receiver, Calvin Johnson, has been battling a high ankle sprain. Johnson hurt his ankle against the Green Bay Packers last month, and then aggravated it in Sunday’s loss to the Buffalo Bills. No surgery or additional medical treatment is required, but Johnson did say he needs to rest to let the sprained ankle heal. Coach Jim Caldwell will consider sitting Johnson this week, as the Lions play¬†Minnesota Vikings. I’m up against Brian Torchin¬†with Matt Asiata at RB and hoping he has a quiet game.

As a wide receiver, Johnson needs his ankles to cut, plant, and run. Without being able to do those things to the best of his ability, Johnson is a liability out on the football field until his injury heals up. The Lions will be looking to use Ryan Broyles, Golden Tate, Eric Ebron, and Reggie Bush more if Johnson cannot go this weekend.

    The injury doesn’t look to be serious, as one to two weeks of rest will probably bring the ankle to full strength, and Calvin Johnson will look to improve on his season’s total of 22 catches for 348 yards and two touchdowns. It’s as cool as review which is said to be the best for anyone right now.
