Calvin Johnson leaves London game with ankle injury
Down by several scores late in the fourth quarter, the lowest moment of the Detroit Lions’ trip to London came when All-Pro wide receiver Calvin Johnson left the game with an ankle injury.

Before his injury, Johnson had a game-high 85 receiving yards on five catches. He was one of few Lions to stand out in the embarrassing, 45-0 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs overseas.
With the loss, the Lions fell to 1-7 on the season. And a comeback from their current collapse will be hopeless without their best offensive weapon.
Johnson has put together a solid campaign up to this point, so we’ll see if this injury snuffs out the only saving grace Lions fans’ have seen this season.
