Detroit Lions fans have gotten used to seeing No. 81 out on the field nearly every Sunday, but when the team looks to break their losing streak at Lambeau Field against the Green Bay Packers this afternoon, they will be without star wide receiver Calvin Johnson.
Megatron has been dealing with a knee injury that has forced him to be limited in practice and listed as questionable on the injury report, and it looks like the injury was too much to handle.
Leading up to the game, Johnson had made it clear that he would do everything in his power to get out on the field, but the injury wasn’t healed enough as he went on the field to warm up and the team ultimately made the call to scratch him for today’s game.
Now, the Lions tough task of winning in Green Bay got that much harder.
When was the last time Detroit tasted victory at Lambeau? Check out this interesting nugget from Rich Eisen of the NFL Network:
No Megatron and last time the Lions won in Green Bay, Matthew Stafford was 3 years and 10 months old.
