"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."
"I'm fine," Bush said, per the website. "I mean, I'm not 100 percent. But I haven't been 100 percent since high school.
"Got rolled up on a few times and injured in the (Saints) game," he added. "But I felt fine after the game, though. Didn't have any setbacks, and that's the most important thing. Looking to just continue to progress every week. I'll be on the field Sunday."
"It's not going to be a thing of degrees," Caldwell said. "When they say he's cleared, he's ready to go and he’s feeling great, when they doctors say, OK, that's when it's going to happen. It's not going to be a whole lot of in between."
Johnson has missed the previous two games due to an ankle injury, which has also knocked him out of the last six practices for the Lions. When asked if he could be playing Sunday, Johnson told ESPN "maybe" following a Week 7 victory over New Orleans. Caldwell also told the media Monday that Johnson will travel with the team to London.
