In the world of professional sports, injuries are an unfortunate reality that athletes have to face. During the Detroit Lions‘ Week 2 showdown against the Seattle Seahawks, safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson experienced a moment of agony that raised concerns about his future in the season. However, Gardner-Johnson displayed remarkable resilience by returning to the game and playing through the pain. Reports soon emerged that his injury was more severe than initially thought – a torn pectoral muscle that could potentially sideline him for the entire 2023 season. Since then, Gardner-Johnson has posted an emotional video to his Instagram page.

What did Dan Campbell say about CJGJ’s injury?

Despite this setback, Lions head coach Dan Campbell has offered a glimmer of hope, suggesting that Gardner-Johnson might stage a comeback before the season concludes.

“We knew there was a little something there, but he was able to play with it,” Dan Campbell said. “But you could tell he was restricted. So we got it checked out and got the results last night.”

“I hate it for (Gardner-Johnson). That’s tough, but we’ll see where this thing goes,” Campbell said. “There’s a chance he comes back this season. Listen, we’ve got Tracy, man. That’s why Tracy Walker’s here. He’s somebody that there’s a reason why we wanted to re-sign him, he was coming off injury, and it’s next man up. Here we go.”
