Johnson, who caught eight passes (on 14 targets) for 93 yards, tied a career-high with three TD catches in Thursday's 45-14 win over the Eagles, ESPN.com reports. Thanks to the Lions' short week, Johnson, who was listed as questionable for Thursday's game, will now have some extra time to manage his ankle injury in advance of the team's Dec. 3 tilt against the Packers.
Johnson (ankle) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Eagles. The Lions' top wideout will give it a go Thursday, as expected, and should be in line to see his share of targets in the team's Week 12 offense. Through 10 games, Johnson -- who saw nine looks (resulting in five catches for 88 yards) in Week 11 - has been targeted an average of 9.8 times per contest.
The Lions expect to have Johnson (ankle) available for Thursday's game against the Eagles , NFL Network's Alber Breer reports. Official confirmation of Johnson's status will arrive upon the release of the Lions' inactives in advance of Thursday's 12:30 ET kickoff, but it looks like he will be a go for the contest, barring any pre-game setbacks.
Johnson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Eagles, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Despite the designation, Johnson is expected to suit up for the Lions' traditional appearance on Thanksgiving. He has an exploitable matchup on tap versus a Detroit secondary that has been torched all season, including 13.1 YPC and seven touchdowns allowed over the last three contests.
Johnson (ankle) was limited at Tuesday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Even if he's limited again at Wednesday's practice, Johnson should be fine for Thursday's game against the Eagles. There's been no report of any setbacks from Sunday's win over the Raiders, and Johnson has grown accustomed to playing at a high level while nicked up. He should enjoy the matchup with a declining Philadelphia defense.
