Calvin Johnson: Lions told him to change concussion story

DETROIT (AP) Retired star receiver Calvin Johnson said the Detroit Lions wanted him to change his story regarding one of the many concussions he had during his nine-year NFL career.

Johnson told Sports Illustrated in a story published Friday he blacked out against Minnesota in 2012 and later told reporters he had a concussion from the game.

"I wasn't seeing straight," Johnson said in the interview. "And they wanted me to change my story."
