Calvin Johnson isn't making any excuses for a 2012 season in which he scored his lowest number of touchdowns in three years or tied for the second-most dropped passes in the NFL.
Not that the Detroit Lions star has to anyway -- setting the all-time league record for receiving yards in a season (1,964) kind of makes up for the rest of that stuff.
But if he wanted to make an excuse, he'd have a pretty good one, because he apparently played last season with more than one broken finger.
That's right. Johnson told the Detroit Free Press that he was catching all those passes for all those yards while playing with an unspecified number of broken fingers, as well as other injuries to his foot, ankle, knee and head.
