Lions WR Bryant Johnson in Golf Cart Accident - [Full Article]

Lions WR Bryant Johnson was placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list. He did not practice on Saturday and could miss a couple of weeks.

"Bryant, unfortunately, had a golf cart accident back in early July,'' said Lions head coach Jim Schwartz. "It was something we were well aware of. We took a couple of trips down to Atlanta to see him. There are no orthopedic issues with it, a lot of superficial wounds, road rash and those kinds of things. We'll take our time and might be a little bit of time with him.''

"In the community that I live in, everybody uses golf carts to get around,'' Johnson said. "It got out of control and it was on two wheels and it fell over. I was driving and it fell over on my side. It slid about 10 yards. There was a hill but it wasn't a steep hill... It really didn't hurt until the first time I tried to take a shower."

Many of the wounds still appear to be a long way from healing and recovery could be a lengthy process. Still, Bryant said the initial accident wasn't that painful.
