Eric Ebron (quadriceps/hand) is listed as probable for Thursday's game versus the Eagles, Tim Twentyman of the Detroit Lions ' official site reports.
With back-to-back full practices under his belt, Ebron will attempt to bounce back from Sunday's catch-less outing against a Philadelphia defense that has held tight ends in check this season, yielding 8.9 YPC and only two touchdowns to date.
Emmanuel Sanders (ankle/finger) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday.
Though officially listed as limited, per the Denver Post, Sanders -- who has been dealing with a left high ankle sprain -- "was pretty much a full participant" at practice Wednesday, with the wideout indicating that he is hopeful with regard to his chances of playing Sunday night against the Patriots.
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 Philadelphia secondary that has been torched all season, including 13.1 YPC and seven touchdowns allowed over the last three contests.
Jonathan Quick was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate Wednesday and is expected to start against the Lightning, LA Los Angeles Kings Insider reports.
Quick has been a bit hit-or-miss as of late, but is coming off a nice outing against the Panthers in which he stopped 33 of the 34 shots he faced to up his save percentage to .915 and lower his GAA to 2.39 on the season. He'll carry a 10-7-0 record into Wednesday's matchup with the Lightning, and the netminder could benefit from the opposition being without a few forwards.
Patrick Beverley (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's morning shootaround, but remains questionable for the game later in the evening against the Grizzlies, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
All indications are that Beverley is trending in the direction of being available off the bench Wednesday, but after missing the last five games, he'll likely be limited in some capacity. Once he demonstrates that he's fully healthy in a game, Beverley could be viewed as an option for the starting point guard job, though those duties will fall to Jason Terry on Wednesday.
