If you're starting Calvin Johnson on your fantasy team, your Sunday is about to go south. Johnson will be sitting out today's game against the Packers with a knee injury.
WR Calvin Johnson won’t play today. First regular season game inactive since the finale in 2010. #DETvsGB— Detroit Lions (@DetroitLionsNFL) October 6, 2013
The streak doesn't mean Johnson was totally healthy up until this point. He broke Jerry Rice's record for most receiving yards in a season and nearly broke 2,000 yards (1,964) last year while playing with broken fingers. Johnson's knee injury comes after fellow wide receiver Nate Burleson was placed on the inactive list when he broke is arm in a car accident.
Then there's the fact that the Lions are playing at Lambeau Field, which normally makes for another disappointing Sunday for the Lions and their fans.
No Megatron and last time the Lions won in Green Bay, Matthew Stafford was 3 years and 10 months old.— Rich Eisen (@richeisen) October 6, 2013
