Lions WR Calvin Johnson not expected to play in preseason
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Lions have benched star wide receiver Calvin Johnson through the first two preseason games in an effort to avoid any injuries, and it doesn't appear Johnson will play in the team's third preseason game, which usually acts as the dress rehearsal for the regular season.

"You may expect it, but you will not get it," Caldwell said when asked if we should expect to see Johnson play against the Jaguars on Friday, per MLive.com.

Lions LB Kyle Van Noy could start year on short-term IR again
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lions linebacker Kyle Van Noy is going for a second opinion on an injury that is "increasingly getting a little bit worse," coach Jim Caldwell said Tuesday. Van Noy has not practiced since struggling through 33 snaps in last week's preseason game against the Redskins, according to the Detroit Free Press.

"It's going to be a little while," Caldwell said. "It's not one of those injuries that's going to take a couple weeks. It's going to be a little bit. He's still getting -- I haven't heard on a second opinion yet, but it's a bit of a problem on the opposite side from where he had it before. It's a little bit different area, so he's got a little issue he's got to come through."

Van Noy spent the first half of the 2014 season on short-term injured reserve after undergoing hernia surgery last August. Van Noy doesn't need another surgery as of now, but he might end up on short-term IR again.

"It just kind of depends on what the final prognosis is and just, in terms of how long we think it's going to take, and then we have to make a decision from there," Caldwell said.

Lions counting on Joique Bell once he is back to 100 percent
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lions running back Joique Bell hasn't practiced since undergoing minor procedures on his knee and Achilles in January, per MLive.com. However, Bell and coach Jim Caldwell have recently said a return is close, and Bell deemed his rehab schedule "preventative."

Bell struggled through the first half of last season, averaging 3.2 yards per carry. But after the team's bye, he improved to 4.4 yards per carry. Bell is confident he can be that second-half back all season.

"This year, I expect to come into the season healthy," he said. "I think I can be that guy when I get back."

The Lions are expecting Bell to be the primary running back once he is healthy.

"I can just tell you that there are no guarantees," Caldwell said. "You just don't know in this league. He's young, he's strong, he's one of those guys that has always been a workhorse, and we fully expect him to come back and be what he was last year for us, and that was a bell cow.

"He was a tough, hard-nosed guy that set a great tone for us, so we're anticipating that exact same sort of effort. He feels he's close, so I feel good about that."
