Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson may need surgery on a sprained knee once the season ends, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Johnson could elect to rest the knee and hope that it heals on its own, but some within the Lions’ organization feel that arthroscopic surgery is the best path forward, as the injury could become re-aggravated by offseason workouts if it does not heal properly.

BURKE: Mike Shanahan could be fired by Washington Redskins as early as Sunday night

The Pro-Bowl wide receiver missed his second game of the season Sunday to rest the knee. He is currently in the second year of of an eight-year, $132 million contract.

My favorite player currently in the league. I can appreciate that we may be in the era of the greatest WR to play in the NFL. Get the surgery and get right Megatron. Lord knows your what keeps the Lions from being the laughing stock of the league they have been before you arrived as the superstar receiver of the league.
