Calvin Johnson to wear protective splint
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

When Lions receiver Calvin Johnson makes his preseason debut Friday against the Jaguars, he'll be wearing a protective splint on the finger that required offseason surgery, reports MLive.com. "It doesn't affect me," Johnson said.

"Doctors did a great job making the thing so that it doesn't affect the way I catch the ball. We'll give it a go and see how it feels."

Johnson, who also had offseason knee surgery, dealt with knee pain much of last season. He said the way his body feels now, compared to the end of last season, is "night and day."

Lions not concerned about Reggie Bush's lackluster preseason
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Lions running back Reggie Bush has dropped two passes and is averaging 2.0 yards per carry on five rushes this preseason. Bush will get a chance to find his rhythm Friday against the Jaguars, though coach Jim Caldwell says he's not worried.

"You see we haven’t played him a whole lot, either, at this point," Caldwell told the Detroit Free Press. "But I’m not concerned about him and what he can do, what he’s capable of doing. He’s done it for so many years, year in and year out, he’ll do the same thing again this year. He’ll be a standout for us."
