Stevie Johnson told the Sunday Rub about when he knew the game was moving past him, with a reality check from his son helping him along.
“I was in my final year at the Giants and I was getting my knee drained two to three times a week.”
“I just picked my son Archie up from school… After we got home [he] drops the bag off and he says ‘Dad, can we go outside for a kick of the footy?'”
“I said sorry mate I’m too sore, he goes ‘…Aren’t you playing tomorrow?'”
