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.

 

Dallas Cowboys Beat The Superbowl Champs At Home

In a performance that shocked everybody, Seahawks included, the Dallas Cowboys managed to beat Seattle, in Seattle. Something that hasn’t been done for some time now. The Seahawks have been totally impenetrable at home, but the fortress has been completely broken down today.

Talking with Marnie Bennett about Tony Romo, and his ability to become that on the field leader really showed. Especially in the fourth quarter, when he pulled off a typical Romo play, in which he dodged several tackles, and still managed to hurl the ball up field for a 23 yard gain. The move was polished off by DeMarco Murray running 15 yards for a touchdown, giving the Cowboys a lead they would never lose.

The game shocked pretty much everybody. Especially considering the Cowboys awful start to the season, in which Romo looked his worst.
