Kerryon Johnson has a strong opinion of his former Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia. On Thursday, he made it public.
A fan tweeted at Johnson and asked him why he didn’t continue playing after three seasons with the Lions, during which he battled various knee injuries.
“Because playing for a military general left me down 2 knees and a neck,” he said.
Johnson ended his rookie season on the injured reserve after spraining his left knee in Week 11.

The Lions selected Johnson in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He played three seasons with the Lions before being released. He then signed with the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad in December 2021 after spending training camp with the team. He didn’t record any stats in the 2021 season
According to Sports Illustrated, multiple players had problems with Patricia’s regime.
Former Lions defensive backs Darius Slay and Quandre Diggs have often shared their negative experiences with Patricia and the “Patriot Way” mentality he brought to Detroit from New England.
Patricia was the defensive coordinator of the New England Patriots from 2012-2017 before taking over the Lions. He was fired in November of 2020 with a 13-29-1 record with the team and has since returned to Bill Belichick’s staff.
