When we reported the news a couple of days ago that Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was reportedly playing with a partially torn PCL, it was met by some speculation. Fair, because it was coming from an anonymous tip that Deadspin received so it was up to you to determine how much faith you had in the report.
Regardless, the report made the rounds and when Calvin Johnson spoke with the media recently, he was asked about the story and whether or not it had any validity. His answer, may have said more than he realized.
Calvin Johnson declined comment on @deadspin report that he's playing with injured PCL.
