Lions | Calvin Johnson quiet in opener
Mon, 09 Sep 2013 18:16:21 -0700
Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson was quiet in the regular season opener against the Minnesota Vikings, posting just four receptions for 37 yards. He had one touchdown overturned after replay determined he did not have complete possession, and he had another touchdown ruled incomplete because he managed to get just one foot down in bounds and the other was on the line.
Head coach Jim Schwartz was quick to point out how double teams led to opening for others, but that doesn't do much good for fantasy owners of Johnson. It was a very disappointing start for a guy selected in the first two rounds on draft day. We all know he'll get on track, and when he does, it will likely be big production.
