Calvin Johnson played last season through the haze of constant double teams and face-to-face attention from the NFL's most rugged defenders.
We also know he played through pain.
Johnson said no surgery is needed, but he's still trying to straighten out the fingers.
With injuries that would have left lesser men floored, Johnson didn't skip a beat and led the NFL with 1,964 receiving yards, breaking Jerry Rice's single-season league record. His toughness is not up for debate.
