In case you missed it yesterday, Calvin Johnson didn’t practice and he had his left index finger taped. Subsequently, everyone lost their damn minds. But fear not, Megatron missed Monday’s practice due merely to what Jim Schwartz called a scheduled day off.
“He wasn’t shut down because of his finger,” Schwartz said. “Just general camp kind of legs and soreness. He needed a day here, too. Calvin doesn’t have a regulator, either.”
When asked about his finger, Johnson said it was injured but that he would be fine. Johnson was also asked about the Madden Curse, to which he replied: “I’m a God fearing man. Curses don’t bother me.”
Well that’s good.
With Schwartz, you never quite know if he’s being honest about injuries, but in this case, I don’t think we have much to worry about (::knocks on wood::). Johnson was at practice today, though his finger was still taped up.
