Bookie: Calvin Johnson wants to make a swift return

Bookies believe that the Detroit Lions could have suffered due to Calvin Johnson’s absence during their 22-9 loss on Sunday to the Green Bay Packers.
But despite his knee injury, pay per head and UK bookmaker services saw that Johnson was apparently close to playing. On Sunday, the star wide receiver who is famous with many bookies was declared inactive after having been listed as questionable throughout the week.
“Real close,” Johnson said. “Obviously we weren’t all the way there today, so working hard to get back.”
The Lions, bookies, and price per head services following the team hope that the knee injury, which was different than Johnson’s strain last season, will not be a long-term problem for the player, but many fans are confident that he’ll make a quick recovery.
“Calvin’s a tough guy,” Lions coach Jim Schwartz said. “He’s a hard worker and he’s going to work hard to get back as quick as he can.”
Pay per head services saw that Schwartz refused to contemplate when Johnson, who is Detroit’s leading receiver with four touchdowns and 21 receptions for 312 yards, would return to action. UK bookmaker services know that the player is also the catalyst for plenty of double teams for opposite defenses.
Detroit QB Matthew Stafford said that he had an idea that on Saturday Johnson might not play, but he was not completely sure until the player was ruled inactive after warm-ups, and pay per head services will see how he continues to do.
“[I knew Johnson was out] about the same time y’all did,” Lions receiver Kris Durham said.
“We were more prepared like there’s a chance he may not play, but we didn’t know for sure until he got out there and tested it in warmups and stuff.”

Pay per head services also learned that RB Theo Riddick, who is well known with many bookies, was taken to a hospital with a concussion, but then they saw that by the end of the game he returned to the Lions and went back to Michigan with the team.
