Megatron’s record setting season becomes even more incredible after it was revealed he spent much of the season with broken fingers.
The Detroit Lions had a pretty unforgettable season, finishing 4-12 after being expected to make the playoffs.
One bright spark was the fact that Calvin Johnson broke Jerry Rice’s receiving record for most yards in a season. While that is impressive enough, it is believed that the wide-out did it with two broken fingers, making the feat even more extraordinary.
‘Megatron’ is largely considered the best player in the league at his position, and this report will only cement that claim. Playing through injury is one thing, but to play with an injury that directly affects your ability to catch, is on a different level entirely.
