Draft Scout *Calvin Johnson News
06/01/14 - WR Calvin Johnson struggled to remain healthy in 2013 and had operations on his finger and knee this offseason.
Now that he's back on the field, Johnson said he's feeling good and hopes to improve on his campaign last season. He also provided some details of how much he was hurting last season.
"(My knee) was bad enough where I had to get it drained every week," he said after Wednesday's OTA. "The finger, it was stuck at 90 degrees. It's good to have those things freed up right now."
Johnson finished third in the NFL last season with 1,492 yards despite missing two games because of the knee injury. He also battled through obvious pain in other games, but said he only sat when he couldn't run.
"It might have been painful, but I could still go out there and play," he said.
In their short time together, Johnson has impressed new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi.
"You've got to be careful not to be a fan when you're watching him because it's really unbelievable when you see him in person," he said. "Just how big, strong and fast he is, it's even more so than you thought. It's pretty impressive."
Now that he's feeling healthier, Johnson hopes to participate in practice more in 2014. Last year he typically only participated in practice once or twice per week on a limited basis, which he said affected his conditioning in games.
"It hurts because you kind of lose your wind a little bit," he said. "You know the plays, but I feel that you have to go out there and practice to be able to play at your best. I'm a firm believer in that. I had experience in the offense therefore I was able to go out there and still play, but I'm a firm believer in being out there during the week definitely improves your performance on Sunday."

"He's going to need some surgery," Schwartz said after leaving the podium. "Nothing major. Not microfracture surgery or anything like that."
There have been reports that Johnson has played on a partially torn posterior cruciate ligament since October and on Sunday ESPN reported he had a sprained knee "with loose bodies in it."
12/26/13 - --WR Calvin Johnson (knee, ankle) said he wants to play in the season finale, but the determination won't be made until game day. He has not practiced this week. It was his ankle, more than the knee, that limited him last week against the Giants.
