Lions WR Calvin Johnson didn't have a significant impact this week thanks in part to a sore knee.

"I just have to get my head around," Johnson said. "I didn't come out of my break like I wanted to. It's tough to stick my foot in the ground with my knee hurting, but that's not excuse."

Johnson missed two days of practice with a sore knee last week.

In addition to the knee soreness, Johnson took a big hit in the third quarter that appeared to shake him up.

Going up for a high pass over the middle of the field, Johnson had his legs chopped out from under him by Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner. Johnson came down hard on his back, losing the football in the process, but stayed in the game.

"I'll be all right," Johnson said. "You're good after the win, but you'll feel it all on Monday."
