Calvin Johnson has certainly made his presence felt today against the Green Bay Packers. He’s gone over 100 yards yet again and scored one touchdown early on in the third quarter off a quick slant in which he trucked a Green Bay defender on his way to the end zone.

On the Lions’ next possession, Matthew Stafford tried to find his main target yet again, this time for a jump ball situation. The play didn’t quite work out as planned, as the ball was pulled down by Green Bay defensive back Sam Shields rather than Johnson:

 

While the interception was bad, what was worse was Johnson was slow to get up after the play, leaving the crowd in Detroit a little nervous. Johnson went back to the sideline where he was checked out by medical personnel and checked on by his teammates.

He seems to be fine, however, as he’s made his way right back out to the field for the Lions’ current possession.
