There are bizarre injuries and then there's this: Michigan running back Drake Johnson might have been injured by a forklift during a workout Wednesday.
According to reports from WDIV in Detroit, Johnson was stretching at Michigan's indoor track facility -- he is on the track team also -- when he was possibly struck by a forklift. Details of the incident and the severity of the injury remain unclear.
