      Lions WR Johnson confirms he had injured fingers

      Calvin Johnson is downplaying whatever was wrong with his fingers last year.


      Johnson caught 122 passes for an NFL-record 1,964 yards last season, putting up incredible numbers despite the fact that the rest of the offense was inconsistent. The Lions went 4-12, but after signing Reggie Bush in the offseason, they hope Johnson will have a little more help this year.


      Johnson met with reporters Monday. He was coy when asked how badly his fingers were hurt last year, saying he "had a couple injuries to them" - but nothing that affected his play much.
