As Adam Schefter put it:Lions WR Calvin Johnson did not practice today. May be nothing, may be something. Lions will update injury report later.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 12, 2012That injury report did come out later and this is what it said:Lions now listing Calvin Johnson with a foot injury, not a Madden Cover Curse, @@sandysandovalEA— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 12, 2012Nobody knows how serious it is, but one thing is certain, there is a madden curse, whether Schefter believes it or not. Some people thought Calvin could be the one to avoid it, but getting put on the injury list after week 1 (precaution or not), is no small matter. Pray for Lions fans, they’ve been through too much to deserve this.
