Calvin Johnson has 'minor' surgery on knee, finger - [Full Article]

Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said Wednesday that wide receiver Calvin Johnson underwent surgeries last week on his knee and finger.

Mayhew called the knee procedure "a minor scope," while adding some unpleasant detail about Johnson's hand issue.

"He played the entire season with a finger really that was pointing perpendicular from his body the whole season," Mayhew said, according to the Lions' official website. "He's trying to catch the ball like that. He would never complain about that, but certainly that was a factor, I think, in the way he played."

Fantasy Impact: 

Johnson's health was definitely a factor this season, but he still racked up 1,492 yards and 12 TDs even though he faded down the stretch. He'll likely enter the 2014 season as our top-ranked receiver.
