01:38 PM ET 11.09 | Calvin Johnson has been quoted as saying he suffered a concussion in the Lions Week 4 game against the Vikings and earlier this week he said he also suffered nerve damage in that game. But the Lions disagree with that. The team issued a statement that said Johnson did not suffer a concussion, but a "stinger", and that he "did not suffer any nerve damage."

Are they looking for a way out of his contract?

I thought a Stinger was damage to a nerve....

It's a minor injury when it happens to you; a major injury when it happens to me? Team doctors and coaches felt fine after the injury, so they sent him back in the game.

Maybe he had a concussion and thought he had nerve damage. Maybe he thinks he is having a great year again. Maybe he thinks this weeks game is in Deeeetroit!
