Calvin Johnson curious how he'll be used this year

Detroit Lions star wide receiver Calvin Johnson makes his preseason debut on Friday night against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

He's curious to see how he'll be utilized by new Lions offensive coordinaotr Joe Lombardi.

The Lions are expected to shift Johnson around to get favorable matchups and confuse defenses.

Johnson has recovered from knee and finger surgeries this offseason.

“I’m as curious as anybody else,” Johnson said. "But one thing that’s not going to change is the way we go out there and work. We’re still going to go out there and bust our butts. No matter what Coach calls, however we fit into the plan, we just want to win at this point.”
