Lions wideout Calvin Johnson has never missed three straight games in his eight-year career. It could happen if Detroit holds him out Sunday against the Falcons in London.
"I'm going to tell you the same thing every week: I'm getting better," Johnson said, via the Detroit News. "Moving around a lot more so I'm feeling good."
With the Lions on a bye Week 9, Detroit might prefer to rest Johnson to get his injured right ankle close to 100 percent for the home stretch. Johnson did some on-field drills last week and is running this week.
"If I'm good enough to play, I'm going to play," Johnson said. "I'll just leave it at that."
