Lions rookie Kerryon Johnson has funny response to winter in Michigan

Winter arrived early in Michigan, dumping a fresh coat of snow on the residents of Detroit. Apparently not a fan of the freezing temperatures, Detroit Lions rookie running back Kerryon Johnson joked about listing himself on the team’s injury report following Friday’s practice.

Good try. Johnson reportedly logged in a limited practice session due to an ankle injury he is dealing with. On top of a frozen bum, Johnson is questionable to play on Sunday. If he does indeed end up suiting up, he and the Lions face a tough matchup in Chicago against the Bears.

For what it is worth, the weather in Chicago is expected be a brisk 35 degrees with mostly cloudy skies this Sunday. That’s at least better than snow.
